Part 1: Hellos & Menu

Parts 2 & 3: Boycott Bahrain F1!
For our first phone in I want to know if Sky and BBC should boycott this month’s Bahrain F1 race as rows over democracy there continue to rage. Activists want UK stations to pull the plug lest they are seen to be putting profits ahead of human rights. So here we go again yet another row involving sport and politics. What’s the right thing to do this time?

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

Part 4: Today’s Papers

Part 5: What’s Clever About Smart Drugs?
Then: what’s so clever about smart drugs? We’re not talking exclusively about pills that boost intelligence or concentration but all the other lotions and potions that fit the bill including diet pills, tanning jabs, anti ageing creams and libido boosters. A medical advisory group reckon some of these chemicals could kill you. If you take them I’d love to know if they work though.

Part 6: Hidden Debt
After that: Hidden debt. One in five people has debts their other half knows nothing about - what happens when the cat finally comes out of the bag? In Corrie, Rovers landlady’s just discovered husband Carl owes thousands. She’s kicked him out. Would you, have you done the same?

Part 7: Too Old To Make A Wish
And finally: Can you be too old to make a wish? One of Eric’s friends who’s 30 still leaves wishes under his pillow. Bless. Why not eh? Or maybe you think wishes are kids’ stuff and not for grown ups who know better than to rely on hope and the help of fairies and wot not?
