This weekend on The Nation… New Zealand has been elected to the United Nations Security Council, but what happens next? Lisa Owen interviews Foreign Minister Murray McCully from New York about our goals for reform, what America wants from us in the fight against Islamic State, and what victory against the jihadists looks like.

Then, in the first New Zealand television interview about her new book, the former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard talks about leadership spills, being a woman at the top, and the terror threat to Australia and New Zealand.

And with Prime Minister John Key laying out the timeline for the flag referendum this week, we debate the pros and cons with the Returned and Services Association president BJ Clark and tech innovator Ian Taylor. Plus, we have some of the best alternative flags in the studio.

We’ll discuss all this and more with our panel: freelance journalist Jon Stephenson, constitutional lawyer Mai Chen, and public relations consultant Trish Sherson.

The Nation on TV3, 9.30am Saturdays and 10am Sundays.
