Sunday 7th March

One Stop Guide to.....Jesus!

Oxfordshire author Mike Beaumont is celebrating selling a hundred and twenty thousand copies of his last book - the "One Stop Guide to Jesus" - which has been printed in fifteen different languages.

Mike Beaumont, from Oxfordshire Community Churches, and presenter of the Journey's series on BBC Oxford, came in to the studio to tell us how much he learnt whilst researching for the book, and ponder how much of his book is lost in translation when it is published in Chinese!

Remembering Haiti

It's only been a couple of months since the devastating earthquake hit Haiti's capital Port-au-Prince and it is so easy to forget about this once the cameras move on, but Oxfam's Ian Bray who recently returned from Haiti came in to highlight the on going dangers that the people of Haiti face.

Ian has worked for Oxfam for more than 10 years, with over 7 years experience as an aid worker in Indonesia and Southern Africa. As the rainy season is threatening to descend on Haiti in April, the makeshift camps which now house many of those who have lost their homes are at risk of floods and the spread of disease.
