  • A short series for BBC Radio Oxford

    Sometimes we get a chance to work on special little projects at work, and this is one that I really enjoyed.

    It involved hearing about the work the Pitt Rivers museum in Oxford is doing to tackle its rather controversial content!  A lot of it was collected at the height of colonial times and in not a very nice way.

    The team at the Museum were great, allowing me to record some interviews in person (although socially distanced of course) in a short lull in the Coronavirus Pandemic in late 2020.  We recorded them from pretty much the spot this photo is taken from.  It gives you an idea of the scale of the place, and the scale of the work they have ahead of them.

  • Lockdown

    It's been a frustrating few months thanks to Lockdown.  The BBC Radio Oxford walks are on hold.

    Obviously for most of the Covid-19 lockdown we haven't been able to gather as groups anyway.  Kate and I are about to reassess when we can re start things.  A complicating factor for me personally is that I've just had a knee operation, so currently not walking far anyway.  

    Most frustrating is that because of the lockdown we can't get access to the database to tell walkers what is happening.  

    Time will tell how we solve that, but we are keen to get things back going soon.

  • Next on-air

    I'm often reading the news and presenting the OxReport in the afternoons on BBC Radio Oxford.

    Reading the news early on Thursday 16th September.

    I'm also going to be hosting the cookery stage on Saturday 2nd October at this years Didcot Food Festival.  Maybe see you there.
