Today on The Wire

  • We find out about Lysistrata -a play by Aristophanes performed by Auckland University Stage 2 Theatre Studies production. Students Jesse Peach and Lucy Gay spill all the secrets on what it's like working under direction from Michael Hurst.
  • Winner of the 2002 Nordic Prize for Literature, author Lars Saaybe Christensen is making waves in literary circles around the world. But it's not the first time "The Half Brother" Is Christensens 10th, and depicts the tale of two brothers struggling for their own individuality. But beware -the book's as heavy as a brick, you'll, need a decent Island holiday to get through this one... Mark Easterbrook has a chance to catch up with Lars on a recent tour of New Zealand.
  • bFM contributor Selwyn Manning of the Independent View, joins us today with the lowdown on North Korea. He should know he's just been there... Selwyn spills the beans on the real deal in the North.
  • Barry Colman from the NBR on the release of transcripts from children involved in the Peter Ellis case
  • Louise Dobson and Australian journalist from the Age with a story about a man named David Hicks, the Australian Taleban who's currently been detained in Guantanamo Bay. His father is sitting in a cage in New York in protest at the decision by the US to make him face a military trial.
  • And all our regulars...the Magazine Review with Monica Dwyer, the AUSA report with Chris Garland and the Green Desk with our Green Dean
  • Should be a goodie!

    Aucklanders can tune in at 95 on the FM dial.
