The Tuesday WIRE with Noelle McCarthy.
Produced by David Belgrave -29th March 2005.

12.00 News with David Belgrave

12.10 The PM.

A replay of Camilla's interview with Helen Clark this morning. Helen castigated The Herald. Again.

12.20 David and Dr Paul Buchanan

Talk of weapons of mass destruction suddenly quietened down a bit after the invasion of Iraq. But now nuclear weapon proliferation is back in the news. The major powers are again at odds as to what to do about Iran and North Korea's interest in the bomb. While Europe, America, China and Russia may disagree on how to handle the thermonuclear aficionados, they all agree more proliferation is a bad thing. WIRE Producer extraordinaire David Belgrave last week spoke to security expert Dr Paul Buchanan about proliferation.

12.35 Conor Mc Nicholas and Rachel Hendry.

I caught up with the NME ed and his mate, independent publicist Rachel Hendry while they were in town for Resonate. Its nice to have the editor of the NME in a small room for a half hour, if only to give my employment prospects a little boost. I started by asking Conor about the relationship between music and the music press. NME rules the indie roost-how much of a Kingmaker is the NME and how much unfounded hype is the mag responsible for??

1.00 Caroline Bell Booth (TBC)

Auckland's hottest director is in Thespians Corner to discuss the Silo Production of This Is Our Youth which opens on Friday.

1.15 Rewired.

We missed it on Sunday because we were too busy scoffing eggs. Here's the best of The Wire for your listening pleasure.
This week featuring Chief Censor Bill Hastings on proposals for new Hate Speech legislation,Marc from the Cosmic Corner on Nos in Christchurch and Steve Braunias's lowdown on the Antonie Dixon trial.

1.45 Mag Review
with the Ever-ready Imogen Neale.

Aucklanders can tune in at 95 on the FM dial. From the desk of Noelle McCarthy News and Editorial Director Radio 95bfm

Gordon Campbell: On The Politicising Of The War On Drugs In Sport

It hasn’t been much fun at all to see how “war on drugs in sport” has become a proxy version of the Cold War, fixated on Russia. This weekend’s banning of the Russian long jumper Darya Klishina took that fixation to fresh extremes. More>>


Binoy Kampmark: Kevin Rudd’s Failed UN Secretary General Bid

Few sights are sadder in international diplomacy than seeing an aging figure desperate for honours. In a desperate effort to net them, he scurries around, cultivating, prodding, wishing to be noted.
