Sunday 24th January

Good morning.

An interesting show indeed.

The Holocaust
With Holocaust Memorial Day just around the corner, on this coming Wednesday the 27th, we heard from local artist Nicholas Hedges who will be unveiling a public art installation in Shotover Park. Also gap-year student Jack Livesey spoke with Phil - he has been to Aushwitz and told us about how that visit has affected him and his studies.

House of Lords - The Big Debate
(You can listen to highlights here)
Joining Phil in the studio this morning we had three special guests to discuss the presence of Bishops in the House of Lords - the so-called 'Lords Spiritual' - whose future will be debated this coming week in the Upper House. Our guests were:

Rt. Rev John Pritchard - Bishop of Oxford
Dr Evan Harris - Member of Parliament for Oxford West and Abingdon
Lord Bill Bradshaw - Baron of Wallingford

Our paper reviewer this morning was James Panton, Co-Founder of the Manifesto Club and Lecturer in Politics at St John's College, Oxford.
