8:40 David Hall - Investing in the Public Service
David Hall is the Director of the Public Services International Research Unit at the University of Greenwich in London. In the week that Prime Minister John Key said there was more to be done to make "government bureaucracy smaller and better" David Hall discusses the value of public services and the economic investment they need.
David Hall is visiting New Zealand as a guest of the Public Service Association.
Mediawatch evaluates the posturing and belligerence at Waitangi last weekend, and finds the media at the centre of some of it; and the programme also asks if the media, like some drivers, have a blind spot for cyclists. Mediawatch also looks at how digital radio is up and running overseas but it remains well under the radar here; and what links alarming reports about our forests with thousands of dead pigs in Queensland?
Produced and presented by Colin Peacock and Jeremy Rose.

The world has watched transfixed as people-power hit the streets of the Middle East.

Ideas talks to Mohsen al Attar, an Egyptian who lectures in law at the University of Auckland and Mohamed Ali Jaballah, a Tunisian studying in New Zealand, about the protest movements in their homelands; and hears from long-time democracy activist Mustafa Barghouti about the Palestinian reaction to the unfolding events.
