Part 1: Hellos & Menu

Parts 2 & 3: Have Crb Checks Had Their Day?
First up for discussion are the infamous CRB checks. Have they had their day? Anyone who works with children or vulnerable adults has to have one, resulting in 4m checks per year. Nick Clegg says the system creates an atmosphere of suspicion and distrust between adults and children. And they create a false sense of security as kids are protected from perverts who haven’t got a record. So is time to wind the system down a bit?

We’ll take plenty of calls on that before it’s over to Kieron for the rest of the day’s headlines.

Part 4: Today’s Papers

Part 5: Why Are Brits Such Prudes In The Nude?
After that: Following on from yesterday’s naked rambler a story, I want to find out why we brits are such prudes when it comes to public nudity? Or maybe I should be asking why some of us are so determined to flaunt our wobbly bits in public when 99.9 per cent of brits prefer to wear clothes when they go out. Are these militant nudists a bit dodgy? Pick up the phone and have your say.

Part 6: Creepy Collectors
Talking of dodgy people, for our last phone in of the week we’re going to get your thoughts on obsessive collectors. Is there something a bit odd about people like this chap who has collected every number one single since 1952. Are men more likely to obsessively collect stuff than women?

Part 7: Talking Telly With Kevin O’sullivan
And finally: We’ll be talking telly with a man who struggles to recollect anything at all, it’s Sunday Mirror TV critic Kevin O’Sullivan. REVIEWS: Big Fat Gypsy Weddings, Emmerdale, A Dad is Born; PREVIEWS: last ever Hustle, Homeland, The Body Squad.
