8:40 Feature interview: Singapore Surrender

9:05 Mediawatch

Rival news journalists sometimes share gossip - and the odd drink. But they're not inclined to share out their stories. However, Mediawatch this week looks into a new plan which could see some reporters working with those they're supposed to be competing against. Also in the programme, why the media must cool its heels in pursuit of Tony Veitch; and how the critics are still getting stuck into the commentators at the Olympics, even after we won all those medals.
Produced and presented by Colin Peacock and Jeremy Rose.

The poet talks to Chris Laidlaw about work and life, and shares some of his new poems.
