The … Wire with Noelle Mc Carthy Producer: Noelle Mc Carthy

12.00 bNews with Katie Fisher. Weather and Surf.

12.10 Leonie - An interview with a guitar teacher who has spent the last 17 years working with violent offenders in Grafton prison, Queensland. Leonie features in the documentary “Music and Murder” which chronicles the experience of three men imprisoned for murder who are learning learning music in jail.

12.20 Michael Cordell. Michael Cordell spent 5 years making “Music and Murder.” The film examines whether self expression can be a useful part of the rehabilitation process. This is a documentary that raises more questions than it answers. Noelle asks Michael what he learned about prisons, about criminals and about the nature of remorse while making the film.

12.45 Matt Nippert. “Born Bad: Are criminals a lost cause?” Are criminals born or made? Is rehabilitation possible for the worst offenders? How do New Zealanders feel we should deal with those who commit violent crime? And does punishment have wider implications for society? The Listener staff writer is in studio to discuss his latest front page article.

1.05 Garth Mc Vicar. Last week as we’re all aware, a known paedophile was run out of Blackball. Residents kept a vigil on the street outside his house, burning torches and all. The Sensible Sentencing Trust have announced that they’re preparing a database of known sex offenders and their addresses. The website should be up and running very shortly,and will push the boundaries on naming people sez Garth Mc Vicar…. Communities have a right to protect themselves, but again it raises the question, is rehab possible for an offender if they are going to face this sort of stigma once they come out of prison

1.30 Green Dean

1.45 Imo with Vice magazine

Aucklanders can tune in at 95 on the FM dial.
