9:05 Mediawatch

Mediawatch talks to NBR editor Nevil Gibson, who says most media got the election wrong because they "lean to the left" -- and an old-fashioned newspaper boss talks about the days before foreign companies bought our biggest papers, and the possibility of local owners once again buying into big names in New Zealand media. Also on the programme, we hear how this week's All Blacks vs Munster game had journalists cranking out the clichés.

This week, Ideas is a programme from the BBC's World Service. The Forum aims to cross boundaries and challenge assumptions on scientific, creative, and geographical topics. South Africa's Max Du Preez goes in search of new ancestral heroes, Susan Blackmore argues our idea of free will is an illusion, and the electronic artist Rafael Lozano Hemmer, whose palette is a mix of robotics and vast public spaces, decodes his vision.
