Thursday 14 June
The ultimate live experience
is here with their tasty fusion of reggae and R&B. Ten piece
Hamilton band " Tasty Brown" makes the trip to our
Good Morning studios to inspire and move you with their big
Two of our young Olympic hopefuls - Black Stick,
Charlotte Harrison and decathlete, Brent
Newdick - are in the studio to talk about their sport,
their dreams and the nervous wait to find out if they have made it
into the 2012 Olympic Squad for London. Find out what becoming a
New Zealand Olympian would mean to them and their determination to
make it happen.
With 3.4 million tonnes of
waste already going into landfills every year, increasing as fast
as the population does, it's going to be our children who have to
deal with the growing problem. But what if you couldn't throw
anything away - how would you reuse it? Hundreds of Auckland kids
respond to that challenge in the annual Schools Trash to
Fashion Awards, where they transform everyday rubbish into
wearable art and high fashion. We've got past winners and newbies
with us in the studio today, working their trashy magic on
Astar and Rod.
Thanks to Michael Ng for taking the lovely finalist's photos
Nelson Aspen is back with us this week, with all the best insider info from LAX. This week, he's all about the Tony's, so watch for his best picks.
Antiques man Josh Williams has some beautiful
Faberge treasures to show us this week and it's your chance to see
how good your eye is. Look on our Facebook page for a photo of the
Faberge box, send in your best guess at what it might be worth,
then watch Josh's antiques segment to see how close you are. Maybe
you'll discover a whole new calling!
June 14th is
World Blood Donor Day and the ideal time for us to
remember the number of lives saved in New Zealand every year by
blood donation (around 42,00).
In 2009, Sonia
Grey gave birth to twin girls Inez and Thandie, but all
three of them nearly didn't make it. She's here to tell us their
story, together with Paul Hayes of the New Zealand Blood
Lady Gaga was in
town this week and she surely showed us how to rock a Peplum. If
you're not sure what that is, tune in to fashion guy Luke
Bettesworth who will explain what the look's about and how
to make it work for you.
The Food Truck Guy
is back on Good Morning with a new book showcasing all his best
recipes. One of The Food Truck's big hits was fresh and fruity
Traffic Light Smoothies, which were devoured by the big hulking
wood choppers at Puhoi's axe man carnival. Today with the help of
some young friends, Michael Van de Elzen shows us
how he does it.
Domenica Houlihan is in the Good Morning kitchen with some warm and sweet pudding treats to help you through the winter afternoons.
Astar is feeling the chill herself this week, so is making a warm peplum wrap vest to see her through the winter months. Watch and follow her instructions for an easy winter wraparound.
The Star Trek series
inspired inventions such as the flip top phone and a whole new
generation of Scottys. One of those is an American engineer who
watched on his family's black and white TV as a nine year old, then
grew up to believe he can build a real Starship Enterprise. It will
be powered by a 1.5GW nuclear reactor, capable of getting us to the
Moon in three days and Mars in ninety. With a bit of practice,
Earth's nearest star, Alpha Centauri, will be a mere nine years
away. But, is it logical? Technology guy Paul
Brislen is transporting in to tell us all about the
