Shortland Street teen heart-throb, Ido Drent is more than just a pretty face. He's also a World Vision Ambassador and Blue Team Leader for the 40 Hour Famine. He travelled with them last year to East Timor, to see the effects of hunger first hand. The trip moved him so much that he's decided to do it all over again in 2012, this time to benefit the African nations of Mali and Niger. Today he's in the studio to tell us about his experiences and the 40 Hour Famine.

For forty eight hours this weekend, close to 800 teams of frenzied film makers will be writing, shooting and editing their masterpieces to compete in the V 48 Film Challenge.

The Watoto Ugandan Children's Choir will be with us today, sharing their life transforming stories amidst a backdrop of vibrant African music and energetic dance routines. All 21 of the children in this choir were either orphaned or abandoned but have found new homes and new hope with Watoto.

They were legends in their own lifetimes, the 1924 All Blacks, dubbed "The Invincibles", after they won all thirty two matches on their tour of the UK, Ireland, France and Canada. All Black Fred Lucas was on that tour and along the way he gathered an impressive collection of jerseys from the other teams. Antiques expert, Josh Williams is in to show us that treasured collection.

Bullying is one of the biggest problems facing schools today and it's no longer confined to the playground. With the growth in social media, it's following children right into their own homes. Paul Brislen is here to talk about issues surrounding cyber-bullying and what parents can do to help their children.

Stolen Girlfriend's Club is the hottest ticket in town when it comes to fashion. Three young surfers who couldn't decide what to wear, went ahead and started their own fashion line that now sells in thirteen countries. They're appearing at the Semi-Permanent Design Conference this week, but first they're with us to talk about their label; how it came about and how it came to be such a force in New Zealand fashion.

Jax Hamilton has a gift with fresh produce and dishes that are good for the whole family, straight from her Mum's own kitchen and this Thursday she's baking a Jamaican Lemon and Ginger Loaf, followed by Brixton Pie.
