Part 1: Hellos & Menu

Parts 2 & 3: Gene Test Unborn Tots For 3,500 Disorders
First up: I’m after your reaction to the latest medical advance - a gene test that would allow medics to screen your unborn tot for 3,500 disorders including autism. Is this good news as scientists claim. Won’t it simply lead to a rise in abortions?

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

Part 4: Today’s Papers

Part 5: Wrong To Ask Jews To Play Ww2 Refugees?
After that a curious one for you. A Jewish couple who attended a world war two renactment in Lancashire were outraged when asked to dress up as Jewish refugees complete with Star of David and battered suitcase. Now if they were ordered to play Jewish refugees I could understand their ire but it’s not clear if organisers even knew what faith the couple were. So do they have any right to complain?

Part 6: When Best Laid Plans Go Wrong
After that we’re going to hear your tales of what happens when your best laid plans go wrong. The weekend’s Jubilee river pageant was a washout because of terrible weather - but what went wrong with your big event: your wedding, your extravagant proposal, your special birthday bash, maybe even at a loved one’s funeral?

Part 7: Vcr Dinosaurs
And finally: are you a VCR dinosaur? Have DVDs yet to enter your life? What’s the matter with you?
