Bumper weekend
After the action-packed weekend last Saturday, the fun continues as we countdown to this Sunday's British Grand Prix.

Wallingford dig
Archaeologists from across the country are descending on Wallingford for the next fortnight as they try to uncover what lies beneath the town's surface.
We spoke to Wallingford Museum curator Judy Dewey who explained all about the project (in its third year)and this year's main excavation site, which will be in Queen's Arbour,(part of Castle Meadows), where an interesting feature revealed by geophysical surveys will be investigated.

Mountain trek
From reviewing the papers for us last week, former rally driver Penny Mallory
is now attempting to scale Mount Elbrus in Russia - Europe's highest mountain.
She told listeners all about the trek, in aid of the charity, which is an international children's charity that uses sport and play programmes to improve health, develop life skills and foster peace for children and communities in some of the most disadvantaged areas of the world.

Alice's Day
It's Alice's Day today and to celebrate, there's a whole host of events, which bring all of Lewis Carroll's fantastical characters to life.
Esther Browning from The Story Museum joined us to explain what's going on.

World cup success?
After the football team's lacklustre display and Andy Murray falling at the semi-final at Wimbledon, sports fans finally have something to cheer about at the rowing world cup.
We spoke to Henley rower Anna Watkins, who has already won two golds and a silver medal, and is hoping to make it a hat-trick this weekend in Lucerne.

British Grand Prix
As Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton do battle at Silverstone this weekend, we spoke to one of the unsung heroes who help make the event run smoothly.
We spoke to Peter Greenhaulgh,Deputy Chief Incident Officer, who works in race control - in charge of all the marshals.
We also caught up with BBC Oxford's Ross Heaton who gave us a run down of how things are shaping up in qualifying.

Warborough Festival
Elvis tribute acts, exotic belly dancers, saucy satirical singers - oh and racing camels - might not be everyone's idea of a country show - but then the Warborough & Shillingford Festival isn't your average village affair.
In fact the ingenuity and diversity of the festival's acts has made it one of the most anticipated events on the Oxfordshire calendar.
We spoke to Wilf Eaton - Warborough Festival Co-ordinator and performer Dillie Keene about how the concept was bourne and what people can expect.
