Saturday June 26

Get Active Weekend
As we hit the hottest days of the year so far.... this weekend is packed full of sporty and outdoor activities.
We spoke to Wimbledon correspondent Jamie Broughton and our man in South Africa Matt Cole, who gave us the lowdown on England's big game against the Germans this Sunday.

Hit for six!
With the current high temperatures it seems a like a distant memory since the county was hit by mass floods three years ago.
We caught up with Charlbury Cricket Club's Chairman Malcolm Harper whose ground was wrecked by the rain.
He explained why the clean-up process has taken so long and how they're ready to play again with a special match involving former Zimbabwe pace bowler Henry Olonga.

Oxfordshire Youth Games
Keeping on the sport tip - Margaret Jones, project manager for Oxfordshire Youth Games 2010,
joined us to explain all about the games. She explained how it's a mini olympics with various sports and activities taking place.
It all happens this Sunday at the University Sports Complex on Iffley Road and The School of St Gregory the Great in Cricket Road.

Earth Mission

Tom Berry from Earthwatch popped in to the studios to tell listeners all about how he is looking to recruit volunteers for their next big project.
Volunteers are needed to join the Climate Change in Wytham Woods expedition. Based at Earthwatch's Europe Regional Climate Centre in the beautiful, ancient Wytham Woods, volunteers will have an exciting opportunity to contribute to forest research which is assessing the impacts of climate change on forests worldwide. As an Earthwatch volunteer, you'll learn the many field techniques essential to capturing accurate data, and will work closely with both scientists and fellow volunteers.

Climate challenge
Oxfordshire schoolchildren challenged BBC Oxford, and its listeners to take climate change seriously - and prove it.
Dashwood Community School in Banbury has been working with the Museum of Natural History and the Botanic Garden as part of the Ark Project.
We spoke to some of the children involved and are offering listeners the chance to do their bit for the environment and plant their own seeds.
