1. Does saying yes to Hobbits also mean we surrender our sovereignty under the Trans Pacific Partnership — NZCTU President, Helen Kelly; NZ – US Council director, Stephen Jacobi; Professor Jane Kelsey and representatives from the film production industry debate this issue.
2. An investigation into the troubled state of the University of Canterbury.
3. The University’s Vice Chancellor is live with Rachel.
4. Brian Edwards is finally back from Italy! So he’s back on the Media Panel — this week, with Susan Wood.

    Are the people at the nation bereft of ideas? If they wanted to debate this issue again, surely there are other people in the world who can better represent both sides. Maybe some analysis about the competitive nature of the film production market. I am surprised Robyn Malcolm didn’t make the cut.

    Robyn Malcolm isn’t allowed to drive to the studio, besides I heard someone forgot to untie her from a ships mast before it sailed.

    This is just like the MSNBC, ABC, PBS, CBA, ABC, CNN, NBC approach to US political issues and a real illustration of why FOX is burying those networks/cable outfits both in terms of audience and revenue.
    Then there is Then there are the “commentators” feeding off the softball BS front folk.
    Edwards? Dumb. Should have stayed in Ireland.

    On the TPP and film industry incentives presented in the program – Prof. Jane Kelsey is clearly a left wing conspiracy nut promoting “Fear”. Helen Kelly – annoying but just doing her job to promote low skilled manufacturing jobs. Steve Jacobi – sensibly noting ‘negotiation’ doesn’t mean the US gets what they want. Jo Coughlan from the Welly City Council was excellent – very positive and had a lot of facts and examples on the benefits to NZ of the film industry, and expressed trust in the competence of our trade negotiators.

    The Nation, full of leftie shitheads who like their own voice.

    Still have flustered feathers after John Key kept interupting your interuptions Rachael? It aint the Rachael Smalley Show, or the Holmes Show.
    Sometime we would like to hear what those who are not lefties say
