Playwright Anna Ziegler
Playwright. Talks to Noelle about latest work in London, Photograph 51.
Science students will know the name of New Zealand-born Nobel Prize-winning physicist Maurice Wilkins. He shared the prize with James Watson and Francis Crick for their work to unlock the mystery of DNA. Rosalind Franklin's name might not be so familiar, but most experts agree her work with Wilkins at Kings College in London made it possible to crack DNA. She worked on the x-ray image of DNA 'Photograph 51'. Her overlooked role is the basis for a successful play called Photograph 51. Nicole Kidman won at the 2015 London Evening Standard theatre awards for her portrayal of Rosalind Franklin in the West End play. The story of Rosalind Franklin has also been on stage in New York and Washington DC.
Playwright Anna Ziegler explains to Noelle McCarthy the story behind Photograph 51.

Tensions Worsen Between Iran and Saudi Arabia.
More on the story about Iran and Saudi Arabia now where the crisis is spiralling. A number of Saudi's allies have severed or downgraded ties with Iran. The move follows Iran's protests about the Saudi execution of a Shia cleric Nimr al-Nimr and the subsequent attack on the Saudi embassy in Tehran. Robin Wright is a joint fellow at the US Institute of Peace and the Woodrow Wilson Centre and has written several books on Iran. She says it is the worst possible moment for tensions to erupt.

Our emergency services reporter Adriana Weber has the story.

AA Calls For More Road Safety Measures
The Automobile Association is calling for more safety measures after the official holiday road toll climbed to 12. The official toll, from Christmas Eve until six o'clock this morning, is four fewer than last year, but excludes one person killed in a crash near Rotorua just before midday today. The AA's spokesperson, Liam Baldwin, says while the overall decline is cause for celebration, the toll is still far too high, and it wants four safety measures to be introduced to save more lives.
