12:00 bfm News with Jen.Weather and the surf report.

  • 12:08 Sir Robert Jones. Sir Robert is what they call a real character. Known for his success in the property business, his occasional forays into national politics, his unabashedly opinionated newspaper columns and his appreciation of boxing he is a man of many parts. He also writes the odd novel to satirically examine the ills abroad today. He has in the past targeted mass tourism, environmentalism and journalism and now, in his latest novel 'Degrees for Evewryone', the commercialisation and trivialisation of Tertiary education. He joins us to chat about this and more - and with any luck he'll have the CEO of New Zealand Cricket, Martin Sneddon, in his office with him.
  • 1:10 Dr. Nick Smith. The Member for Nelson, Dr Nick Smith, was yesterday convicted for contempt of court over his disclosures concerning a Family Court case. The conviction brings the possibility of a bye-election as he seeks to reiterate his mandate. It also opens up the debate over the secrecy of the Family Court. To get the details of his plans and of how he is faring he joins us today.
