Jane Ginsburg7:08 Current affairs

Te Ururoa Flavell discusses the changing face of Maori politics and Wallace then talks to political commentator Morgan Godfery.

8:12 Insight Culturally Motivated Crime in NZ

Forced and underage marriage, family violence and female genital mutilation –when is it culture and when is it a crime? Does this country have the laws to deal with these issues and is any extra legislation needed? Insight joins with Voices, Radio New Zealand’s programme promoting greater understanding of NZ’s ethnic minorities, to gauge what needs to be done, if anything, to protect women and children.
Produced by Philippa Tolley.

Victor Rodger8:40 Victor Rodger – Return of Sons

Sons was initially staged 20 years ago and is Victor Rodger’s first play. It’s the semi-autobiographical story of a son who visits his dying father after a 10-year silence and embarks on a journey into his unexplored Samoan heritage. Most recently, Victor Rodger’s play, Black Faggot, was performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Sons is produced by the Auckland Theatre Company and is on at the Mangere Arts Centre.

9:06 Mediawatch

Mediawatch looks at coverage of the ISIS crisis and the tightening of our anti-terror laws; PR people re-consider their reputation in the wake of Dirty Politics; and who’s hiring journalists for a new media outlet that’s little more than a new name and a rumour?
Produced and presented by Colin Peacock and Jeremy Rose.

10:06 The Cost of Economic Crime

A draft government report obtained by Radio New Zealand estimates the cost of economic crime to the New Zealand economy is between $6.1 billion and $9.4 billion each year. We take a look at what’s in the report and talk to criminologist Professor Michael Levi, who helped develop the UK’s National Fraud Indicator which inspired the New Zealand report; Victoria University associate professor Lisa Marriott from the School of Accounting and Commercial Law; investigative journalist Matt Nippert; private investigator Michael Campbell; and Deloitte’s forensic accountant Barry Jordan.

His first modeling assignment was with the great Mario Testino and Kate Moss. He has now given up the catwalk for curating – and he has brought one of the most-visited fashion exhibitions in the world to the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne. He talks to Wallace about the exhibition From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk – The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier.
