Today's Focus
Wide Open Road: It's the last episode of the round Australia rock'n'roll road trip: today we listen to the music of Tasmania, the gorgeous island just off the southern mainland of Australia. From ascerbic folk music to convict cannibalism, pop-tastic electronica, death metal and the inspiration behind one of AC/DC's most infamous songs, join Jarrod Watt for the conclusion to this unique series. (Saturdays, 8.30am-9am)

This week World Vibes has two musical themes on offer! First a musical tribute to Puerto Rican band leader, percussionist and composer Rafael Cortijo, he passed away 34 years ago this Monday. And a selection of Hot New Hits from a lot of places on the planet! A show not to be missed! (1.10pm-3pm)

The Big Idea is Back!
The Big Idea: This week we want to consider how events become information, and how information becomes news. Crucial to this process is the figure of the reporter, filing the copy for print or electronic media which remains our main source of knowledge about what’s going on in the contemporary world. The intrepid war reporter is one of the most admired figures of our time, the low-life gossip hound is one of the most despised; but whether writing about politics or sport, fashion or science, the reporter doesn’t only tell us the news, but creates and mediates it, deciding, under various pressures, what is newsworthy and how to present it to the reading or viewing public. Who wants to be a reporter, and what does it take? Who are reporters answerable to? And where is the line drawn between news and opinion? (Sundays, 8.30am-9am)
