The Tuesday Wire November 2nd.
Host: Noelle McCarthy

12.00 bNews with Will. Weather and surf.

12.15 Bill Hodge.
The issue of judicial activism isn’t going away anytime soon-that much is clear following the most recent intemperate commentary from Justice Sian Elias. Speaking at a recent Auckland conference, Elias’ outburst concerned judges pay and their early retirement age. It is an embarrassment for Helen Clark and Michael Cullen every time judges open their mouth but does that mean they shouldn’t? Bill Hodge of the Department of Law at Auckland University is on the Wire this afternoon.

12.30 Greg Zullo, U.S.A.
It’s D-Day in the US today as if you didn’t know and we have an American listener to bFM on the show. Gregg Zullo is an I.T. worker based in Oregon, one of the all important “swing states”. He’ll talk to us as the votes come in..

12.45 Jonathan Milne.
The political editor of The Herald On Sunday is on the Wire for his regular catch –up. Tariana is crying stitch-up and Tamihere is still in trouble. But what’s with the pedometers?

1.00 The Green Desk
Save the planet with Green Dean

1.15 Arts and that.
Sarah Hopkinson with a bi-weekly wrap of arts news.

1.30 John Hunt.
If you live in Auckland you’ll have noticed that the CBD is experiencing the biggest ever upswing in construction. You’ll also have noticed that many of the buildings are god-awful. So is it easier and cheaper to build ugly buildings? How hard can it be to lift our game when it comes to urban planning? John Hunt is a Professor of Architecture here in Auckland and he also chairs the Urban Design Panel.

Aucklanders can tune in at 95 on the FM dial.
