Part 1: Hellos & Menu

Parts 2 & 3: Rockets On The Roof Olympic Row
First up: a chance to hear your thoughts on the rockets on the roof Olympic row. Six ground to air missile batteries are being set up to protect the Games from terrorists. Two of the sites are on top of peoples’ homes and residents ain’t happy. One group has taken the MoD to court - we’re being made a target they say. Have they any right to complain? What if the missiles were above your kids’ bedroom?

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

Part 4: Today’s Papers

Part 5: Scrap Free Perks For £10k Pensioners
After that: should those grey hairs who pull in a pension of 10 grand a year or more be stripped of their free bus passes, TV licences and winter fuel allowance? Yes says a leading Tory moderniser - if we’re all in it together its only fair older folk take the odd hit. Is it?

Part 6: Girls In Boys’ Jobs
After that and with a female builder on the panel I thought it would be great to hear from women who do what were traditionally seen as men’s jobs: construction, engineering and so on. What made you want to get your hands dirty? Are you taken seriously? Will there ever come a time when half of all bricklayers are women?

Part 7: Is This The Worst Summer Ever?
And finally: the question everyone’s been asking: is this the worst summer ever? Well is it?
