'What do you want from the news?’ It’s A Question Of Balance 8-9 PM Saturday 31st January

This Saturday January 31st 8-9 PM on It’s A Question Of Balance with Ruth Copland we consider What do you want from the news? Do you get it? Print media can give much more detailed information on stories than TV - is this something you consider in how you get your news? A publication like The Economist has specific experts to report on different areas. Do you expect journalists to have specialist knowledge of the subjects on which they are reporting? What responsibility do you feel the media has to ensure the information they give is accurate? Do you think positive stories should feature in the news too?

‘Can you be pro-life and pro-war?’ It’s A Question Of Balance 8-9 PM Saturday 17th January

This Saturday 17th January 8-9 PM on It’s A Question Of Balance with Ruth Copland we consider ‘Can you be pro-life and pro-war?’ Many people who are against abortion are not opposed to war and the lives that are taken, both military and civilian, including women and children. Is there an inconsistency here? Or is it reasonable to support the protection of life in some circumstances and not in others? Some faiths, such as the Jehovah Witnesses, are conscientious objectors because they believe taking life is always wrong. Other people argue that killing in war can be just in certain circumstances. But does this mean that abortion may be the right choice in certain circumstances too? Once we open the door that some lives can be taken, who has the moral imperative to decide which lives those should be? The question this week is not about whether war or abortion are wrong, but rather is there an inconsistency in being for some lives and not others?
