Michael Kiwanuka is a British musician of Ugandan heritage who writes songs combining soul and rootsy folk influences and sings them with a deep, husky soulful voice. The BBC announced in January that Kiwanuka had won their Sound of 2012 poll, an annual survey of music critics and industry figures to find the most promising new music. He's played with Adele and now he's here to sing for us.

She's the home breaking, bike riding siren of Shortland Street, when she's not busy being a happily married mother of two beautiful boys. Roz Turnbull aka "Cat" is with us to chat about her role in the country's favourite daytime drama.

And then to help us celebrate twenty five years of Pacific Island TV in their own very special way, are the boys of the Dee-Licious Dance Crew!

It was the first programme for and by the Pacific Island community. "Tagata Pasifika" has been gracing the screens of New Zealand television for over twenty five years. Here to mark that milestone and talk about how it all goes together, are producer Stephen Stehlin and Director Marama Papau.

The big boys of telecommunications have been moving and shaking this week, with Vodafone and Telstra Clear about to merge companies. Here to talk about what that means to the New Zealand consumer and how it might affect the roll out of ultra fast broadband, is telecommunications expert, Paul Brislen.

Now that the Paris season is done, New Zealand has a unique opportunity to be ahead of the trends this Winter, by adopting the key looks before Northern Hemisphere Winter 2012. Luke Bettesworth is here to show us what came out of Paris Fashion Week and how we can adapt the looks for everyday wear.
Special thanks to the lovely models of KHM Management.

Susan Te Kahurangi King is an exceptionally talented artist who suffers from autism and hasn't spoken a single word for more than fifty years. Art dealers and museums are vying for the privilege of displaying her work, but her incredibly loving and protective family insist on keeping the thousands of drawings together. In a sensitive portrait, Dan Salmon tells Susan's story and he's here in the studio to share it with us.

Costa Botes' spectacular documentary "The Last Dogs of Winter",  has  been winning friends for its ornery conservationist hero and his more camera-friendly young Kiwi assistant at major film festivals around the world. Its New Zealand premiere is this week at the International Film Festival, but first, we have film maker Costa Botes in to tell us the story from behind the scenes.

James Hogan, our antiques man, took a trip around his show room today and picked out a totally random group of precious objects to share with us. See what he came across on his stroll, plus we have some viewer photos to talk about.

Natalie Oldfield is in the kitchen today with more old fashioned baking from her Gran's kitchen. Today she's got a healthy nutty crunch to help fill children's lunch boxes and a winter favourite for after school.

And, Astar's been a bit worried about the mayhem going on in Coronation Street this week, so to cheer herself up, she's celebrating their fifty years of existence with some Coro style crafts and Betty's good old hotpot - plus she's taking on the role of barmaid, just in case she needs to fill in for Liz.
