The 95bFM Tuesday Wire with Kim Choe
8th July 2008

12:00 bNews, Weather and Surf with José

12:20 Broadcasting Policy – hear all about it
National's announced its intentions to do away with TVNZ's Charter, and open the funding pool up to all networks and programme producers. We'll get a response from Broadcasting Minister Trevor Mallard about this, and also get the low-down on some of Labour's other broadcasting-related policy in this here election year.

1:00 The Arts Hole
bFM's arts feature makes a triumphant return this week, with the help of Bronwyn Bent. She will present an as-yet-unnamed series of interviews addressing the issues faced by creatives in their respective industries. This week: Shapeshifter's manager Rebecca Caughey.

1:20 Citizen Crime-Fighters?
In recent weeks the media has been littered with stories about community crime fighting. There's been much debate about who can best make our streets safer – triads, vigilantes, community police – anyone but the police, it would seem. Community Patrols of New Zealand are a national volunteer organisation who work in conjunction with the police. Spokesman Robert Fowler will join us to talk about the issue the way his organisation sees it.

1:40 The Green Desk
It's potato planting time! Sustainable Simon and bFM gardener Paul Thompson will be looking at heritage potato varieties and why it's important to try and grow some of our own food.

Aucklanders can tune in at 95 on the FM dial.
