Produced by Eric Frykberg

8:40 Feature interview: The Battle in Georgia
Barry Parsonson and Jane-Mary Rawls have been going to Georgia for 12 years, helping children with disabilities who have been raised in orphanages. Their most recent visit ended just a couple of weeks ago, so they narrowly missed being caught up in the hostilities. They tell Bryan Crump about life in Georgia and the background to the current violence.

9:05 Mediawatch

Mediawatch this week looks at harsh criticism - and the reaction it can provoke.
Thanks to the internet, criticism of broadcasters is stronger, travels further and hangs around longer than ever before. But is this really healthy? And is it fair? The programme also looks at how two entertainers recently tried to get even with the media after receiving bad reviews.
Mediawatch then hears from the key figure in broadcasting in a tiny Pacific Island state that's about to be invaded by the biggest media contingent its ever seen.
Produced and presented by Colin Peacock and Jeremy Rose.

9:30 Feature interview: Common Ground in the Commonweath

10:30 Hidden Treasures

Each week Trevor Reekie takes you on a trip that seeks out musical gems from niche markets around the globe, the latest re-releases and interesting sounds from the shallow end of the bit stream. This week Trevor digs deep to unearth a modern day Russian Paganini in leather trousers, as well as celebrating the brass-bound lung power of the Slavic Soul Party.

10:45 Feedback.

What the listeners have to say.

11:05 Ideas: You are feeling very sleepy.

We spend a third of our lives doing it, but we still don't really know why. Sleep is one of the more delicious and necessary facts of our lives, and it's still the best thing you can do in bed other than eat buttered toast, but it's a mystery as to what it is, why we do it, how much we need and even how to get a good night's sleep.
In Ideas this week, we take a relaxing look at all things to do with sleep.
