Love, war, family, new life - we used to lay the big issues in the lap of the gods - but now we attempt to wrest control amid the turbulence of modern life. Join our moderators and guests as they discuss the matters once determined by the gods. As always, great music will follow.

It’s a challenging topic – how to manage our greatest asset, our oceans, and as importantly, what lies beneath them. It’s said we know more about the moon than we do about the deep ocean – so, a lot to learn. The oceans used to be in the hands of the gods – Tangaroa and Poseidon. The issues relating to over-fishing translate directly to the New Zealand experience. There is a growing call for a far bigger percentage of New Zealand waters to go into protected marine reserves – and of course, that gets all very political. If Tangaroa or Poseidon were to travel to modern day New Zealand and have a couple of quiets together, overlooking the sparking Hauraki Gulf, with the yachties, and the boaties, and the ferry sailing past, I think there would be only one thing on their mind. They’d turn to each other and go – where are the fish!? Join Wallace Chapman, Dr Rochelle Constantine and Dr Tom Trnski as they talk about our oceans in this most important of panels. See you there.

Great Music
Don McGlashan - One of our most enduring artists, “Where most modern pop sounds as if it was cloned from some long-established archetype, McGlashan is that rare musician who only ever reminds us of himself.”
