Who would have thought... Listen up at 12.45 when Alastair tells all about this huge story he's stumbled upon. You don't want to miss this.

The discussion was one of three organised by the NZIA in a series called Forces and Inertia; Pip will give us a round up of what ensued last night and perhaps a preview of next week's session, which is about visions for Auckland.
  • Rebecca Lineham from Amnesty wil talk about Liberia, where it is, it's history, and why it's so volatile there at this time.
  • How do we punish? Criminologist Dr John Pratt from Victoria Univresity is an expert in punishment and how we go about it. He's made some pretty dark predictions about the future of prisons, and joins us to discuss at 1pm

  • And Monica Dwyer review this weeks best in print on the Magazine Review
