12:20 Getting a job, the Right way
What questions should an employer never ask in a job interview? The Human Rights Commission has released 54 pages' worth, in their document Getting a job. The pre-employment guidelines are designed to protect potential employees from discrimination. A sensible measure, or political correctness gone mad? We will ask with Equal Employment Opportunities Commissioner Judy McGregor.

This is only on of Ole's latest endeavours in a long string of creative pursuits, which including being a published poet and short story writer, as well as a broadcaster, visual artist, and once having a top-ten chart hit in the 80s.

bFM Acres' resident green-fingers Paul Thompson is back with Sustainable Simon. This week: the effects of the ongoing extreme weather; whether it's okay to gather seaweed from the seashore to fertilise your garden; and the carbon footprint of pea-straw!

1:40 AA vs. ARC
The AA is up in arms about the ARC's moves to implement a fuel tax – this will be gradually introduced from next winter if today's council vote is successful. The ARC is accusing the AA of trying to derail the campaign for rail electrification, as it were. The AA's transport spokesperson Simon Lambourne will discuss why the association's is making such a fuss about it now.
