Rise of the moral majority: An examination of Christian political activism in the wake of the Homosexual Law Reform bill .

Interviews with: John Massam , the Editor of “Challege”’ John Massam; Bill Subritzky of the Auckland Coalition of Concerned Citizens; political lecturer Paul Spoonly ; Rev Selwyn Dawson, retired Methodist minister and Wellington Central MP Fran Wilde, and Babara Goodman , Campaign for Tolerance.

Trouble at Bill: Alarms expressed about a botched investigation into an illicit sex ring in Dunedin provoked an internal enquiry and a report but these have not satisfied critics. The Police Association says the report raises more questions than it answers. Detective Sgt Tom Lewis, who first raised concerns, is facing a forced transfer.

Interviews with: Detective Sgt Lewis; Police Commissioner Thompson; Const Paul Stevenson of the Police Association; and head of the Association, Paul Morrow .

Nothing to Lose: Despite so many losses suffered by the East Coast rugby team, the game is still king on the coast. A visit to Ruatoria by the North Harbour team illustrates many differences between the two teams and not just in the playing standards.
