Tuesday WIRE with Noelle McCarthy - Produced by David Belgrave

12:00 bNews with David. Weather and Surf with Noelle

12:30 Jim Anderton The Progressives seemed to have started their policy initiatives for the next election. First on the agenda for the junior coalition partner is a cut in the company tax rate to 30%. This move has surprised critics and won praise from the business round table which normally opposes the policies of the left-wing party. Also on the books is a plan to keep graduates in the country by paying for the 10c-in-the-dollar compulsory loan re-payment for three years. Also Jim Anderton recently spoke out against the Green Party for its support of allowing doctors to prescribe medical marijuana to chronically ill patients. Progressive leader Jim Anderton speaks to us about these issues this afternoon.

12:45 Mag Review Chris Berger reviews Mother Jones.

1:00 Thespians' Corner Oliver Driver talks to us about the Auckland Theatre Company's Christmas Pantomime and Sex with Strangers.

1:30 Green Desk with Green Dean Green Dean investigates KFC's decision to change its chicken supplier. The fast-food giant and its new supplier are under-fire for using GE soy to feed its chickens.

1:45 Charlene Chen Alternative forms of education are growing in popularity as more parents but their kids in private schools with different philosophies from the mainstream. We talk to Charlene Chen the chair of the Montessori College of Auckland, a trust working to build Auckland's first Montessori high school. We ask her about why she feels Aucklanders need choices for their children's education and what makes a Montessori school different.

Aucklanders can tune in at 95 on the FM dial.
