Today on The Wire

  • bNews with Olivia
  • It's 8.30pm, you've just left the office after a late night at work and you need to get home. Your cars at home, because like all good Aucklanders, you caught the bus this morning. As you step up to the rank, a thousand questions race through your mind...Which one doesn't look dodgy? Does that car look safe? Will he take me where I want to go? And will he keep his hands to himself? It may be agressive questioning for the simple task of catching a cab but it's a very common occurance. Today we speak to Raewyn Cranch-Shaw director of Angel Taxis. They use only female drivers. But is this a human rights breech? What will they do if a boy asks for a ride? We find out today.
  • Pauline Hanson is being called Australias first political prisioner. Last week she was jsentenced to 3 years prison for electoral fraud. We catch up with Public Address' Rob O'Neil from Sydney.
  • Scott Donaldson, and Kevin Biggar plan to row the Atlantic Ocean next month. It is a distance of 2800 nautical miles. They're currently in training, we speak to them directly from the climate chamber.
  • Green Dean will join us again for the Green Desk
  • And Monica Dwyer will wrap up today with the Magazine Review
  • Aucklanders can tune in at 95 on the FM dial.
