8:12 Insight A Chemical Legacy?

Insight looks at the continuing concerns of those who have been exposed to the potentially deadly chemical, dioxin, in New Plymouth. The Government is launching a new health service for those who have been contaminated, but campaigners say that doesn't go far enough and are calling for compensation and an official apology, akin to that recently received by Vietnam War Veterans.

9:05 Mediawatch

Mediawatch this week looks at the New Zealand Press Association. For 125 years, our national news agency worked as a co-operative, sharing the news for the benefit of all the press. But now - after only three years as a commercial company - it has now become the latest local media outfit laying off its own staff. What went wrong? Also on the programme - a look into panicky reporting of power and petrol prices - and why not all publicity's good publicity in ad campaigns that are designed to disturb. Produced and presented by Colin Peacock and Jeremy Rose.

Chris Laidlaw chairs a panel that includes: Consultant Tony Baldwin, Trustpower's community relations manager Graeme Purches and Ralph Matthes from the Major Electricity Users Group.
