Today on The Wire

  • bNews with Renee Mundy
  • We Investigate the 12 arson attacks around Auckland CBD last night, are there any links to the death of a woman who set herself alight in Aotea Square last night also? Police are saying at this stage the two events are unrelated...
  • Mt Eden are running their annual Young Artists Awards, the competition is now open and calling for submissions. We talk to Sue Gardiner who'll explain what kind of talents they're after.
  • President Bush last week visited Africa, all the while dodging questions on bungled intelligence. Peter Cozens, Executive Director of the Centre for Strategic Studies in Wellington, joins us to discuss.
  • A medically supervised Heroin Injecting Centre has opened in Sydney. What the hey?? We find out what this is all about.
  • Last week Peter Sharples spoke with Police at a Hui, promoting the dangerous effects of "P", or "Pure" a drug that is now our rampant in our community. Constable Andre Morris Iwi Liasion Officer for Waitakere tells us of the Hui outcome, the problems P's creating, and ways to combat it. And yes, we know we've been harping on about P for well over a year now - but it is still a massive problem. We feel it is as much our responsibility to educate, as it is law enforcement's to protect.

  • Aucklanders can tune in at 95 on the FM dial.
