Queen's Birthday special


It's Queen's Birthday, and ,with a bit of luck, one has the day off! We've got some great guests for you on Good Morning, don't miss it!

The Queen's representative in New Zealand for six years, former Governor General Dame Cath Tizard has even had the Queen to stay! She joins us in the studio for a chat.

Early this morning the Queen's Birthday Honours list was released, and some New Zealand greats have been recognised for their services to the country. One of those legends is former test cricketer John 'Mystery' Morrison and he joins us today for a chat!

The Beat Girls always deliver dazzling performances. They're here right now with their brand new glam rock routine which is more David Bowie than David Bowie.

Steve has some Monday morning gossip for us! He's shining the light on the romantic royals of Monaco.

Because it's Queen's Birthday, we're looking at some handy Maori phrases to use when acknowledging one, two or several people at a party. And our kaiako Matai Smith is performing for us! Don't miss his interpretation of the Stylistics' song Stone In Love With You.

Are you feeling uninspired by your wardrobe this winter? Are you bored of all the predictable cold dull greys and blacks? Well, warm yourself up with colours inspired by the crown jewels! Stylist Sally-ann Moffat is here to show us how.

Music reviewer Simon Sweetman is in the hot seat today, and we're all over the musical spectrum, from Bob Dylan to Radiohead, and some more gems in between.

Chef Martin Bosley has got two winter warming recipes for you to try. He's making spiced lamb and chickpea soup with yoghurt and coriander, and vegetable, prosciutto, and potato dumpling soup.

Do you remember the Royal tour of 1953-4? The nation stopped! It was an unforgettable occasion, and Royal Family enthusiast Bill Thomson  is with us to show off his collection of mementos from the tour.

Mother England and the Queen's Rule may seem like a distant memory to our contemporary society. But it hasn't always been that way. Our Queen's Birthday Panel - Dame Cath Tizard, John Morrison, David Russell and Frank Torley - are sharing experiences and opinions on how New Zealand has been shaped, and what's yet to come.

And you've got the day off, so why not join us in a little exercise with Julz Darroch!
