12:30 Jim Anderton The Progressives seemed to have started their policy initiatives for the next election. First on the agenda for the junior coalition partner is a cut in the company tax rate to 30%. This move has surprised critics and won praise from the business round table which normally opposes the policies of the left-wing party. Also on the books is a plan to keep graduates in the country by paying for the 10c-in-the-dollar compulsory loan re-payment for three years. Also Jim Anderton recently spoke out against the Green Party for its support of allowing doctors to prescribe medical marijuana to chronically ill patients. Progressive leader Jim Anderton speaks to us about these issues this afternoon.

12:45 Mag Review Chris Berger reviews Mother Jones.

1:00 Thespians' Corner Oliver Driver talks to us about the Auckland Theatre Company's Christmas Pantomime and Sex with Strangers.
