Part 1: Hellos & Menu

Parts 2 & 3: Stars Who Stayed Silent Over Savile “Sex Abuse”?
First up: I want to know what you make of the celebs lining up to tell how they suspected the late sir Jimmy Savile was a pervert - and yet said nothing when he was alive? Paul Gamabaccini and Esther Rantzen have both this week stuck the knife into their former colleague but not until after 10 alleged victims found the strength to finally come forward. Should those who heard rumours about Savile have acted sooner?

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

Part 4: Today’s Papers

Part 5: 11 Hour School Day Too Long?
After that: Is an 11 hour schoolday too long? The governor of a yet-to-open free school plans to keep pupils on the premises from 7.30 in the morning to six in the evening. The panel was outraged when they heard this yesterday - but I can’t see the problem. Longer at school learning stuff means less time on the streets or playing video games. Maybe every school should do the same?

Part 6: Clubbing Bum-Pinchers!
Moving on we’re going to find out if you support the women campaigning to get bum pinchers kicked out of nightclubs. So far only two clubs have pledge to crack down on what some fellas see as a bit of fun - but many women feel is harassment verging on sexual assault. What do you think?

Part 7: Why Aren’t We Working 9 To 5?
And finally: Why aren’t we working 9 to 5? Why do work the longest hours in Europe? Why are doing on average almost a whole day’s worth of unpaid overtime each week? Are we being exploited? Or are we perhaps too scared to stand up to the boss and demand a fair deal?

    What gives women the right to complain about men pinching their bottoms when there are still women who go out and pinch men's bottoms. Natalie Casey's reaction to this when it was pointed out was appalling. How can she complain about men harassing her but snigger like an immature child when a group of men protested when some women did it to them. Why should men have to put up with this? Why the DOUBLE STANDARDS? Good on Linda Bellingham for sticking up for men. She is the voice of common sense.

    My husband and I are shocked with the news about Jimmy Savile. He is dead now but if his abuse is true and we believe it is, his memory should be tarnished to the degree where he is remembered not for the charity work he did but for the way he used his fame and position to access young children. We think these ladies are just the tip of the iceberg and hope more come forward.

    24 hours in a day. children recommended to sleep 8 - 10 hours. then a suggested 11 hours in school. leaves 3 - 5 hours of exhausted children capapble of doing nothing. This would destroy family life. The childs education is a parents job too - they learn how to form and keep relationships, how to interact with others. 11 hours school would damage the child irrepairably. The main influence of a child is at home - if the child is never there or too tired they will lose this vital place of nurturing. Love is the best educator and the parent is the best person to influence their child.

    You are debating now that children should do an eleven hour day. Then later in your programme you will be debating that the British work longer hours, then anywhere in the EU. You state that the average working day is 9 to 5. That is only a seven hour day. So you think children should be away from their family home and work longer then their parents. Doesn't make sense to me. Also why bother having children if you want to stujff them in a school for eleven hours.
