Election 2010

Election fever still lingers as discussions of coalitions and partnerships take place. We gave a comprehensive rundown of who took the seats in our county and spoke to the various leaders.

Science Saturday

Jheni Osmond from BBC Focus Magazine brought listeners up-to-date with the latest science news from around the world. She explained about how the technology behind the six million dollar man is making it in to reality and even on to the High Street.

Indian Song and Dance
Dr Samuel Rabi joined us in the studio to tell listeners all about a colourful evening of song and dance planned in aid of the Thames Valley Air Ambulance service.
He organised the event to raise money for a charity that does life-saving work day in and day out but rarely gets the kind of publicity or support it deserves.
Held at the Helena Kennedy Student Centre at Oxford Brookes University next Saturday, the evening will include: classical dance from Meera Shah, folk-dancing from students at the Kala-Arpan school of dance and a sumptuous three-course dinner.

Teddy Bears Picnic
If you go down to the Radcliffe Square today expect to see a furry surprise as teddy bears gather for a picnic this afternoon.

One of the organisors of the event Mary Ann Mackenzie, spoke to Vicky about the picnic in aid of the Oxford Children's Hospital and a new children's book aimed at being polite.

The picnic runs from 1pm-5pm.

RAF Falcons
Flight Lieutenant Rory Jackson spoke to listeners about the launch of the RAF Falcons Parachute Display Team 2010 season. They will be performing one of their world famous, and breath taking, displays over the skies of Oxford.
You will have the opportunity to talk to members of the team about their job, not just as a member of the Display Team, but in the wider context of training personnel in specialised parachuting roles.
The Team have been invited to "drop in" at Oxford Parks at an Event organised by the Rotary Club of Oxford before donning their running shoes to take part in the 5k Oxford Fun Run where they will be running for their chosen charity "Headway".
