The Wednesday Wire hosted by José Barbosa

12:00 News with Kim, weather.

12:10 AUSA report with Dan the Man.

12:45 Dr Bruce Hucker, deputy Mayor of Auckland.

The public has been invited to make submissions on the future development of the Tank farm on Auckland's waterfront. The council plan calls for a mix of residential, commercial and public zoning on the land, but city groups are calling for a larger slice to be put aside for parks. Auckland's deputy mayor Dr Bruce Hucker gives us the lowdown.

1:10 Dr Patrick Kelly, paediatrician at the Starship Children's Hospital and director of the Auckland District Health Board team which deals with child abuse and neglect.

A proposed education programme seeks to prevent shaken baby syndrome by showing parents of newborns a graphic video showing the effects of shaking on a baby's body and brain. We discuss the programme with Dr Kelly.

1:30pm Dr Rangihiroa Panoho, lecturer of Maori Art at the Auckland University of Art History.

A South African government official has slammed Picasso saying that he stole from African art to boost his flagging talent. That's kicked up a debate about the use of indigenous art forms in western art. Dr Rangihiroa Panoho is on the wire to discuss how this issue relates to New Zealand.

Aucklanders can tune in at 95 on the FM dial.
