Focus on Palestine, 4-5pm
In the last three months of 2015, the world turned it's eye on Israel Palestine again, as clashes and violence on both sides escalated. Some have called it the beginning of a third intifada, while others simply see it as a continuation of the resistance to the Israeli occupation.  Since early October, over 90 Palestinians, and over 16 Israelis have been killed. These numbers climb a little every day. Ania from Tuesday Breakfast speaks to Ahmad Nasser, Palestinian medic living in Ramallah, Abd Elrahman Salaymeh, Palestinian teacher who lives on Shuhada street in Hebron (Al Khalil), and Phoebe, an Australian human rights observer from the International Solidarity Movement who all give their perspective on the recent situation.

The Ravens Lair 10pm - 11:30pm Ewen's collection of alternative music, punk, funk and rock from the 1960's right through to today. Some old and new, more of the old though from the 1970's when music was diverse and bands were experimenting with new ideas and styles. Nothing mainstream here, all hidden gems on albums, the songs that are worth listening to but didn't make the hits.
