Saturday June 19

Augmented Reality
We kicked off the weekend with a science lesson from BBC Focus Magazine's Jheni Osmond.
She gave listeners the lowdown on augmented reality and fear.

Mock Mayor
We spoke to Tony Legge about the Mock Mayor election in Abingdon today.
He explained how by ancient tradition, a "mock mayor" the mayor of ock street (abingdon), is elected each year to tell the civic mayor where he/she's going wrong in the way that court jesters criticised the king.
The event starts from 10am at the Brewery Tap pub and the new mayor will be announced at 4pm.

Woodstock Carnival
Woodstock's annual carnival takes place today and Dennis Allen chairman of the Woodstock charity carnival joined us. He explained how this year's carnival is part of the wider celebration to commemorate the building of the wall around the park, which was called The Royal Park of Woodstock, and we now know as Blenheim Park.
Woodstock will be alive with stalls, street entertainment, drummers and live music, as well as the grand parade from 5pm.

It's a dogs life

Champion dog handler Hollie Kavanagh joined us with her doberman Seamus to tell listeners how she will be heading to Denmark to represent the UK in the world dog handling competition. The 15-year-old explained how she has been working with dogs since she was seven and how excited she is to be representing the country.
We will catch up with Hollie next week to see how she fares.

Ciao Ark
Paula Clark from the Children's International Arts Organisation (CIAO) joined us to tell listeners all about an exciting new project celebrating the arts and environmental science.
The festival includes a host of art workshops and kids will get the opportunity to help build an Ark on the lawn of the Oxford University Museum.
