8:40 Feature interview: Climate Change and Migration in the Pacific
Philippe Boncour is from the International Organisation for Migration, based in Geneva. He talks to Chris Laidlaw about how the global community can best manage migration that happens as a result of changes to the environment.
In Mediawatch this week we look at how David Bain has broken his media silence with an exclusive interview for a women's magazine, but it steered clear of his recent retrial and the evidence against him. A reporter who covered the Bain trial from beginning to end tells us what he makes of that, and why he went public with his own opinion on the not guilty verdicts. We also look at how the ranks of business journalists are thinning out as the economic recession bites; and how some reporters lost their perspective on Michael Jackson's passing.
Produced and presented by Colin Peacock and Jeremy Rose.

Professor Jeffrey Winters (right) from Northwestern University in the US has been watching closely the Indonesian presidential elections this week. He talks to Chris Laidlaw about corruption and governance in the country with the world's largest Muslim population.
