Topics - 'I still believe in you' is a Cliff Richard song that his fans are hoping to get to no. 1. It was a top 10 hit last time around, in the 1990s. They want to show support. "Let's fight back for Cliff!" this is called online. He's not being supported by British media, particularly. He's had his songs taken off radio playlists and one of his movies was cancelled on TV. Has due legal process been subverted in Sir Cliff Richard's case and are there questions here too about civil liberties? Jonathan Krebs will join us on that. Wellington wants to be the first city in the southern hemisphere with street lights that track runaway dogs, flash when someone is in danger and dim when there is no one around. A city council committee will this week consider whether to upgrade the capital's 18,000 street lights with brighter LED bulbs and digital technology that interacts with smartphones, tablet computers and GPS satellites. Out this afternoon the latest Hotels Price Index, showing where New Zealanders like to go when they travel overseas and, presumably, stay in hotels.
