Find out why

Part 1: Hellos & Menu

Parts 2 & 3: Should Bbc Pay Top Money To Keep Big Stars?
First up: Should the BBC pay top whack to stop big name stars defecting to Sky or ITV? Or would Aunty do better to let them go and find new, better value faces to replace them with? If you were running the BBC wouldn’t you worry that if your stars disappeared so would a huge chunk of your audience?

We’ll take plenty of calls before it’s over to Tom for the rest of today’s headlines.

Part 4: Today’s Papers

Part 5: Upping Sticks With Kids After A Split
After that: Upping sticks with the kids after a split. Is it morally wrong to move miles away from your ex if that means it’s then a nightmare for them to keep seeing their kids? Is moving abroad an even bigger crime if you’re the resident parent? Or maybe you feel building a new life for you and the sprogs is more important than easy access for your ex?

Part 6: Why Jail Nazi, 97?
Moving on: I want to know if there’s any point in trying to jail a 97-year-old Nazi war criminal? Laszlo Csatary sent more than 15,000 Jews to die at Auschwitz. He was convicted of war crimes in 1948 but escaped to Canada. He’s now been found in Europe. Nazi hunters want him to face justice but others question the wisdom and costs involved in pursuing a very old man. So what would you do?

Part 7: Rejection Makes The Heart Grow Fonder?
And finally: Does rejection makes the heart grow fonder? The more Tom’s character in Top Hat is rebuffed by the woman of his dreams the more he wants her. Does this ever happen in real life, that’s what I want to know. If you see rejection as a challenge we’d love to hear from you.

    I don't mind the matthew wright show constantly questioning how the BBC "spends" public money but the public also indirectly finances the "free" channels through advertising. The consumer pays for the programmes AND the production costs of commercials and everyones PROFIT. So how much does an hour of FREE telly actually cost the average household?

    Probably like a few others, my now ex-husband took the children and me off the immigration paperwork in USA so that we had to leave the States and arrived back in England homeless and penniless so that he could be free to divorce me and marry his American girlfriend. 4 years later he has still not paid a penny towards his children or even written to them!
