It has been a traumatic year for New Zealand, but as the nation celebrates Christmas Day, it is a time to reflect on 2019 and what can be learnt from our local tragedies that shocked the world.

Petra Bagust takes the microphone for an hour examining peace, using it as a chance to reflect "on the good, the hopeful, and a coming together of families". 

She is joined by Police Negotiator Lance Burdett to discuss anger and calmness, Ihumātao protest organiser Pania Newton on protesting peacefully, and former punk rocker turned vicar Josh Jones.

Petra also talks with Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, who shared her Christmas message as she reflected on the past year.
