Xenophobia in South Africa
Violence against foreigners in South Africa came to a head two weeks ago, and since then has resulted in nearly 60 deaths and the displacement of over 30,000 people from their homes Albert Venter, Professor of Politics at the University of Johannesburg, talks about the economic situation that has fuelled the xenophobia, and whether the government's response has been adequate.
Music for the People
One of New Zealand's most enthusiastic proponents of traditional music, Moana Maniapoto joins Kim to talk about her prolific international career. We'll find out what the climate is like for Maori music, and how her band Moana and the Tribe ended up being invited to perform at a United Nations conference in Germany this week.
Intrepid archaeologist James Robinson struck gold on Tawhiti Rahi Island, uncovering remains of a pre-European Maori settlement dating back to 1823. What did he find there, and what can it tell us about early Maori societies?
