Part 1: Hellos & Menu

Parts 2 & 3: Ban Irish Marching Season
For our first phone-in we’re crossing the Irish Sea to hear your thoughts on the latest round of marching season violence that has seen 22 coppers hospitalised since Monday. Every year the run-up to the 12th of July celebrations seems to end in trouble - and yet we still allow these so-called loyalists to wind up their catholic brothers and sisters, all in the name of tradition. Isn’t it time someone put a stop to all this nonsense?

We’ll hear what you have to say on that before it’s over to David for the rest of the headlines including an update on the phone hacking scandal.

Part 4: Today’s Papers

Part 5: No Ivf For Stepmums
Then: no IVF for stepmums. I want to know what you the Nottingham woman denied a test tube tot on the NHS because she already has a stepson? This 33-year-old woman has never actually met her partner’s son, who’s 20, but health chiefs don’t care - because in some parts of the country a woman with a stepchild, but no sprog of her own, doesn’t qualify for IVF: her free go belongs to the woman who has neither her own child or a stepchild in her life. Is that fair?

Part 6: Killing Yourself For Your Kids
Then: killing yourself for your kids: Is it only Deputy PM Nick Clegg who, according to his wife, is doing himself in trying to combine work with childcare. Clegg busts a gut trying to do the school run or make it back for bath time while running the country. Is there too much pressure on breeders to do it all: bring home the bacon and be the perfect parent. Perhaps sometimes the kids the should take a back seat? Controversial!

Part 7: Has Collins Killed Corrie?
And finally: has Michelle Collins killed Coronation Street? If the tabloids are to be believed the answer’s Yes but I think that’s grossly unfair on the actress. Ludicrous plots and too many new characters are spoiling it for me.

    I've been trying to watch this episode every day since it was broadcast, I get a couple of minutes and then it freezes indefinitely and I then have to close it, reload and sit through the ads all over again. How strange that the adverts work fine, it's the programme that is the problem...! Hmmm. Please sort this out D5, It is extremely frustrating (and it's not the first time that this has happened to me, it's very common) If you are going to offer an 'On Demand' service then you really need to ensure that it actually responds to demand. You will lose viewers which will surely affect your advertising revenue.

    Why is the Wright Stuff not on demand yet, but the other programmes which have been on today, are?

    The problem with that is from what we can see this is now being done by youngsters who are probably not even paying taxes

    With the riots, why doesn't the police leave them to it. Let them do there thing. Then explain it's them thats going to have to pay to repair it all with raised taxes etc. Im sure most people will get fed up with it all after a while and stop it all.
