11th March 2008

12:00 bNews, Weather and Surf with Will

12:40 Cyber Storm II
What does the Government do when it wants to make sure the country is protected from cyber terrorists and cyber criminals? It gets a bunch of computer nerds together and asks them to play war games. This particular operation is called Cyber Storm II, a joint venture with the US, UK, Australia and Canada. Roly Smoldon from MPA Technologies will talk Kim through the process.

1:00 Water, the essence of life
Kim talks to Strahan Coleman from World Vision about the work he's been doing around university campuses this week to raise people's awareness of how many countries lack access to safe water.

1:20 The IWC: more than just a beached whale
The International Whaling Commission held a special meeting in London last week in the hope that pro- and anti-whaling countries could put aside their differences and actually get some work done. The word 'consensus' may be too strong a word for such an organization, but Conservation Minister Steve Chadwick says she's optimistic about the meeting's outcome, and will talk to Kim about it.

1:40 Green Desk
Simon Miller talks to Carmen Gravatt from Greenpeace, who is on board the Rainbow Warrior as it powers its way from Auckland to Gisborne. He'll get the lowdown on what its like being on tour with the ship.

Aucklanders can tune in at 95 on the FM dial.
