The Tuesday Wire Hosted By Kim
29th January 2008

12:00 bNews, Weather and Surf – with Mikela

12:20 Water rights?
The Te Atiawa iwi at the top of the South Island are seeking an urgent Waitangi Tribunal hearing into the allocation of water rights in their area. Wellington lawyer Kathy Ertel is representing the iwi and will speak to Kim about why local Maori should have the right to manage water over the local authorities.

12:40 Thanks, but no thanks
Kim talks to anti-apartheid campaigner John Minto about his decision to turn down a nomination from the South African government for the Companion of O.R. Tambo Award. In the past this has been awarded to people such as Kofi Annan, so what are Minto's grounds for refusing the honour?

1:00 Key-note address
bFM's News and Editorial Director José Barbosa reports live from the Ellerslie Novotel, where John Key is delivering his state-of-the-nation address. His speech marks the beginning of election-year politicking, so how many vote-grabbing policies can he cram into one speech?

1:20 The Arts Hole

1:40 The Green Desk
Sustainable Simon Miller talks to Finn Mackesy, chairman of Permaculture NZ, about how permaculture has come out of the garden and into all aspects of decision making (planning, design, communication).

Aucklanders can tune in at 95 on the FM dial.
