has now taken full control of Buckinghamshire Care's

:04:01.:04:04.

and we expect all but a handful of them to be officially made

:04:05.:04:07.

redundant in the next few days. I've got a statement

here from the joint administrators. It says it's "deeply regretable"

first time it's been in administration.

:04:39.:04:42.

It went into administration in 2015 but a new investor was found

:04:43.:04:44.

But even if that were to happen, the move makes it much harder

for Manor to make it to the start of the season in Australia

A man's died after a two-car crash near Banbury.

It happened in Cropredy on Tuesday morning.

A Ford Fiesta ended up on its side in a hedgerow.

:04:58.:05:00.

More than a month after the death of George Michael at his home

:05:01.:05:10.

in South Oxfordshire, his body is yet to be

:05:11.:05:12.

Police say they're still waiting for toxicology

:05:13.:05:15.

reports to come back, which means the inquest into his

The star's body was found at his home in Goring on Christmas Day.

:05:18.:05:24.

Services have been held to mark Holocaust memorial

:05:25.:05:26.

In Oxford members of the public and councillors gathered

:05:27.:05:30.

for a special ceremony at the town hall, marking the anniversary

:05:31.:05:33.

of the liberation of Auschwitz at the end of the Second World War.

:05:34.:05:38.

John Fieldsend, who now lives in Thame, remembers Hitler coming

:05:39.:05:40.

People of all faiths gathered at Oxford town Hall for Holocaust

:05:41.:06:05.

Memorial Day. It has been more than 70 years since the genocide which

:06:06.:06:09.

claimed more than 6 million Jewish lives. It gives us an opportunity to

:06:10.:06:15.

member what happened in the context of the Second World War, to remember

:06:16.:06:19.

the absolutely appalling industrialisation of killing. The

:06:20.:06:25.

total lack of humanity in dealing with people. John witnessed this

:06:26.:06:34.

first hand. As a young Jewish boy living in Germany he heard Adolf

:06:35.:06:37.

Hitler address a rally. I can still remember that voice, ... That

:06:38.:06:50.

memory. It's firmly locked in the back of my head as I can't find the

:06:51.:06:56.

off switch. John now lives in tame. During the Second World War he and

:06:57.:07:02.

his black brother fled to Britain from Nazi, occupied Czechoslovakia.

:07:03.:07:06.

Their parents were taken to and chips. John still has the final

:07:07.:07:12.

letter they sent him. We want to say farewell to you who wear our dearest

:07:13.:07:16.

possession in the world. And only for a short time were we able to

:07:17.:07:22.

keep you. Don't forget us and be good. I come to, thank all the good

:07:23.:07:27.

people who have accepted you so nobly. Today photographs from the

:07:28.:07:35.

Holocaust went on display at the town Hall. The pictures of those

:07:36.:07:41.

emaciated bodies, the lines going to the gas chambers, yes, they are

:07:42.:07:47.

powerful images and ones that should inspire us to make sure it never

:07:48.:07:53.

happens again. Victims of genocide is in Cambodia, Rwanda and Bosnia

:07:54.:07:57.

were also remembered, along with those still being subjected to

:07:58.:07:59.

racism and intolerance. The actor, author and activist

:08:00.:08:02.

Russell Brand has helped to launch a new service for people living

:08:03.:08:04.

with mental health issues. Buckinghamshire Recovery College

:08:05.:08:07.

runs educational workshops in Aylesbury It now hopes people

:08:08.:08:10.

who have experienced troubles It now hopes people who have

:08:11.:08:14.

experienced troubles in their past will mentor

:08:15.:08:17.

those in need of help. We can't help everyone but everyone

:08:18.:08:29.

can help someone. A famous saying which encapsulates the ethos of a

:08:30.:08:34.

brand-new institution launched in Aylesbury this morning.

:08:35.:08:37.

Buckinghamshire Recovery College holds classes the people struggling

:08:38.:08:41.

with mental health will stop at today's event one man who has openly

:08:42.:08:46.

struggled with his was keen to lend his voice. Mental health is a

:08:47.:08:53.

disease of perspective. It is impossible for a person to attain

:08:54.:08:57.

that perspective in solitude, they report quiet support and community

:08:58.:09:02.

from people that understand it. The idea is simple. Health professionals

:09:03.:09:05.

work alongside tutors who have had their own personal battles with

:09:06.:09:09.

mental health. They then share their experiences to help others overcome

:09:10.:09:13.

the issues. The college took on its first students in September and now

:09:14.:09:18.

have nearly 200 people enrolled in workshops and courses tailored to

:09:19.:09:22.

improve their well-being. I'm now working in supporting people in

:09:23.:09:26.

mental health who need that support and understanding. And for me that

:09:27.:09:31.

passion is creativity and it has helped me get back on the road to

:09:32.:09:34.

recovery. But it has been 18 years and now is the right time for me to

:09:35.:09:39.

talk about it. I think they think there is this idea of recovery as

:09:40.:09:43.

some kind of finished product. I'm going to pop out of eight box and

:09:44.:09:50.

go, I recovered now! Hopefully that stigma will diminish and the

:09:51.:09:54.

perception will be, you can live meaningful life with a mental health

:09:55.:09:58.

difficulty. Today's event was the start of what the college hope will

:09:59.:10:02.

be a long, successful journey, stopping thousands of people

:10:03.:10:03.

overcome mental health one by one. Still to come -

:10:04.:10:09.

A new season on skates... The team sport combining hockey,

:10:10.:10:11.

rugby and even F1 - Some of the big names in Oxfordshire

:10:12.:10:23.

sports are here ready for the Oxfordshire sports awards.

:10:24.:10:29.

All this week we've been hearing some of the inspirational stories

:10:30.:10:32.

of families who've been cared for by the Children's Hospital in Oxford.

:10:33.:10:35.

Tonight, in the last of our series, we hear from some of the people

:10:36.:10:38.

who fundraise for the charity - to help pay for medical equipment

:10:39.:10:41.

as well provide respite facilities for families who need

:10:42.:10:43.

Katharine Da Costa has been to meet three friends from Bicester who've

:10:44.:10:48.

set their sights on raising ten thousand pounds to mark

:10:49.:10:52.

Three families with three big reasons to be thankful

:10:53.:11:01.

She was born with a cleft pallet, dislocated hips and also

:11:02.:11:13.

respiratory problems which meant that she needed to be resuscitated

:11:14.:11:15.

When Ralph was born he was unresponsive

:11:16.:11:20.

and they had to work on

:11:21.:11:22.

Unfortunately, he didn't stay breathing and they had to keep

:11:23.:11:27.

So he was taken into SCBU, into the intensive care unit, and he

:11:28.:11:32.

When Remy was six months he was rushed

:11:33.:11:38.

into hospital with sepsis and meningitis.

:11:39.:11:42.

We were told by the doctors it was potentially fatal.

:11:43.:11:44.

We really at the time had no idea of what the outcome was going to be.

:11:45.:11:50.

And what long-term lasting effect he would have as a result of it.

:11:51.:11:57.

They've all experienced the difficulties of living

:11:58.:12:01.

at the hospital with a sick child and the strain

:12:02.:12:03.

It made a really tough time as comfortable as it could possibly

:12:04.:12:08.

They helped the family as a whole, not just Beth.

:12:09.:12:16.

They were there with a cup of tea when we had really bad days.

:12:17.:12:20.

They worked tirelessly, which is just

:12:21.:12:21.

But even down to the small details, like the children's

:12:22.:12:26.

playroom - the batteries are always stocked

:12:27.:12:28.

and there's always something to play with.

:12:29.:12:32.

So, to show their appreciation and go the extra mile

:12:33.:12:35.

for the tenth anniversary year - the mums are planning to run 52

:12:36.:12:39.

miles in competitive races - from the Ox5 at Blenheim

:12:40.:12:43.

to the Oxford half marathon later this year -

:12:44.:12:46.

and they hope to raise ?10,000 in the process.

:12:47.:12:51.

I'm not a natural runner at all but I'm trying my hardest.

:12:52.:12:54.

I've bought a second-hand treadmill so

:12:55.:12:55.

I'll be practising in the evenings and while the children are in bed.

:12:56.:12:59.

You never know, we might hate the Oxford Half in October and then

:13:00.:13:02.

one of us has this great idea to enter a marathon before

:13:03.:13:05.

the end of the year - you never know.

:13:06.:13:08.

We've been so lucky with the hospital so, to be honest,

:13:09.:13:15.

raising ?10,000 feels like a very small price to pay,

:13:16.:13:18.

cos there's no price on the gratitude we've got.

:13:19.:13:26.

Well, a short time ago Eleanor Jones came into the studio -

:13:27.:13:29.

she's the hospital's head of fundraising.

:13:30.:13:32.

I asked her why launch a new fundraising campaign now.

:13:33.:13:38.

The tenth anniversary appeal to raise ?2

:13:39.:13:39.

enhance the services we need, and hospital

:13:40.:13:42.

have said to us this is

:13:43.:13:44.

what they need to make those services better for those young

:13:45.:13:47.

So what we're doing is trying to inspire the communities

:13:48.:13:53.

create the children's Spittal in the first

:13:54.:13:56.

place to come together to

:13:57.:13:58.

contribute to that ?2 million and raise money for some

:13:59.:14:00.

What projects do you need to get money for?

:14:01.:14:03.

The biggest is our parents' accommodation project.

:14:04.:14:05.

We will be expanding the accommodation

:14:06.:14:06.

we offer for the parents at the Children's Hospital, meaning mums

:14:07.:14:09.

and dads can stay near their sick children while they are in hospital.

:14:10.:14:12.

We are going to expand that from 17 to 60 beds.

:14:13.:14:15.

We're also going to be investing in state-of-the-art

:14:16.:14:17.

equipment, we're going to be improving some of those outside play

:14:18.:14:21.

areas, and just making those young patients' stay in hospital that

:14:22.:14:24.

There are a lot of charities out there who want people

:14:25.:14:28.

Some people might question why the NHS needs additional support.

:14:29.:14:32.

We want the NHS to be directing all of their funds

:14:33.:14:34.

into front-line clinical services, and a charities here to make those

:14:35.:14:37.

little added extras that little bit better.

:14:38.:14:38.

So from toys and games in our children's' playrooms all the

:14:39.:14:41.

way up to the big things like creating a dedicated Children's

:14:42.:14:44.

The charity gives the NHS a bit of flexibility to get not just

:14:45.:14:48.

what is needed but what makes the biggest difference.

:14:49.:14:50.

And obviously, like with all NHS services, demand

:14:51.:14:52.

is growing and it's only ever going to grow in the coming years.

:14:53.:14:55.

It means Oxfordshire Children's Hospital is a

:14:56.:14:59.

wonderful place to come, because it is providing world-class care.

:15:00.:15:02.

But that does mean those numbers are just going to increase

:15:03.:15:04.

so what is really important to us is that we

:15:05.:15:07.

are not just planning for now, we are planning for the future.

:15:08.:15:10.

And that is why we're investing ?2 million in

:15:11.:15:12.

So how big a challenge as it to get people who

:15:13.:15:15.

haven't had family members in the hospital to give money?

:15:16.:15:19.

Obviously, we've seen that people are so

:15:20.:15:21.

grateful when the doctors and nurses have been so kind, and they get out

:15:22.:15:24.

How hard is it to persuade other people

:15:25.:15:27.

Well, like you saw from the three ladies in the BT

:15:28.:15:32.

Well, like you saw from the three ladies in the VT

:15:33.:15:34.

earlier, those people that have been touched by the Children's Hospital

:15:35.:15:37.

absolutely recognise the need for it.

:15:38.:15:38.

But we are constantly inspired by patients and our clinicians and

:15:39.:15:41.

those fundraisers, and I don't think there's a single person in

:15:42.:15:44.

Oxfordshire that hasn't been touched by one of those groups.

:15:45.:15:46.

So what we want to say to the communities is,

:15:47.:15:49.

be as proud as we are about the place that you created.

:15:50.:15:51.

It was fundraising that created the Children's Hospital in the first

:15:52.:15:54.

Come together and let's make a difference for those

:15:55.:15:57.

We're less than two hours away from the start

:15:58.:16:02.

of the Oxfordshire Sports Awards - being held at the Kassam Stadium.

:16:03.:16:05.

He's also presenting our sports round up tonight.

:16:06.:16:10.

Jerome - you're a man in demand this evening.

:16:11.:16:15.

I'm not as in demand as the wine waiters here all the people handing

:16:16.:16:21.

out the awards tonight, because that is what we are going to find out

:16:22.:16:27.

Knight, who has won the 15 awards to celebrate Oxfordshire success in

:16:28.:16:31.

2016. More of that come. We have all sorts of people nominated. But it is

:16:32.:16:36.

with the Olympics that we start our sports tonight. And in Milton Keynes

:16:37.:16:42.

weather suggestion from Badminton England is that the next Olympics

:16:43.:16:46.

will produce a very poor return in terms of medals if funding for the

:16:47.:16:51.

sport not reinstated. Public funding was cut after the last Rio games

:16:52.:16:54.

disbarred despite some success. They want to turn bronze into gold

:16:55.:16:57.

in Tokyo but right now Olympic medallists Marcus Ellis

:16:58.:17:00.

and Chris Language can't They, like all the other players

:17:01.:17:03.

face an uncertain future after the Hearing that news in

:17:09.:17:11.

December was obviously, it was a real kick in

:17:12.:17:17.

the I don't think anyone

:17:18.:17:19.

could believe what It wasn't just a case

:17:20.:17:25.

of the funding being we juiced, 18th of August 2016,

:17:26.:17:29.

the day Marcus and Chris one Britain's first ever males

:17:30.:17:32.

:17:33.:17:34.

sports' decision not to spend a penny of their ?345 million

:17:35.:17:37.

budget on Badminton, leading up to Badminton has launched

:17:38.:17:42.

an appeal but it still has to prepare for the worst

:17:43.:17:47.

if that appeal fails. We have to prepare for what life

:17:48.:17:50.

without UK Sport funding It's been a very challenging

:17:51.:17:53.

five or six weeks here. We've got a number of staff

:17:54.:18:00.

We've informed the players about what their programme

:18:01.:18:06.

could look like should we not be successful here.

:18:07.:18:15.

UK Sport's Badminton snub means Marcus and Chris may need

UK Sport's Badminton snub means Marcus and Chris may need

:18:33.:18:34.

to find between ?60,000 and ?70,000 each in the run-up to Tokyo, just to

:18:35.:18:38.

A court is ?10 an hour and we train six hours a day.

:18:39.:18:42.

And we need six courts, so that's quite a lot

:18:43.:18:44.

These are not luxuries, these are the basic things we need.

:18:45.:18:48.

And then in terms of tournaments, if we are

:18:49.:18:50.

not travelling, playing tournaments our opponents in competition are.

:18:51.:18:52.

And they are going up in the rankings and we are going down.

:18:53.:18:56.

Badminton's players and coaches and management are confident in the

:18:57.:18:58.

sport's ability to win Olympic and Paralympic medals in Tokyo and

:18:59.:19:01.

They are now heading to London in just two weeks' time for

:19:02.:19:04.

It will prove to be a pivotal moment for the sport.

:19:05.:19:09.

here we are the Oxfordshire sports awards. People about start filing

:19:10.:19:13.

in. The guests will have a little surprise halfway through when they

help launch the BBC radio Oxford Move Eight campaign.

Physical inactivity is responsible for one in six premature deaths,

:19:19.:19:21.

40% of long term illnesses and costs Oxfordshire councils

:19:22.:19:23.

Doing a total of just 20 minutes of physical activity a day can be

:19:24.:19:29.

more beneficial to your health than losing weight,

:19:30.:19:31.

lowering your cholesterol or even stopping smoking.

:19:32.:19:36.

Adina Campbell went to find out how much fun it can be!

:19:37.:19:40.

Shifting and shuffling is what keeps this dance troupe from Oxford

:19:41.:19:43.

But it's not just about the competitions.

:19:44.:19:47.

Say I take a break from dancing for a little bit, I

:19:48.:19:50.

start to feel my body start to stiffen up.

:19:51.:19:52.

Any tension you feel, any anger or anything like

:19:53.:19:55.

that, you can just feel relax afterwards.

:19:56.:19:57.

Whether you choose to do more dancing, jogging or walking,

:19:58.:20:01.

being more active is at the core of BBC Radio Oxford's

:20:02.:20:04.

It's being supported by one of the county's

:20:05.:20:11.

It's more about using nature and using what we've got in

:20:12.:20:15.

Oxfordshire and some of the grounds, the Parks,

:20:16.:20:17.

the country estates that

:20:18.:20:18.

There are different motivations For different people.

:20:19.:20:22.

Some people might want to join the gym and that

:20:23.:20:24.

Some people might enjoy the outdoors a

:20:25.:20:30.

The latest NHS guidelines recommend we do about two and half hours of

:20:31.:20:34.

moderate aerobic exercise like this dance class every week.

:20:35.:20:43.

Or if you prefer your exercise more high

:20:44.:20:45.

impact, you could choose to do 75 minutes of vigorous activity

:20:46.:20:48.

In between all of that cardio we should

:20:49.:20:54.

be fitting in strength conditioning sessions like weightlifting

:20:55.:20:57.

The idea is to get more of us moving our bodies and embracing

:20:58.:21:07.

It does make a tremendous difference, these exercises.

:21:08.:21:15.

And if you don't mind me asking, how old are you?

:21:16.:21:18.

If you don't move, you stiffen up and

:21:19.:21:22.

the more you stiffen up the more you don't

:21:23.:21:25.

want to do anything - you lose the will

:21:26.:21:27.

But, essentially, the "Move It" campaign is about putting

:21:28.:21:30.

So the guests here are going to help launch the campaign. Couple of them

:21:31.:21:47.

are here. They are nominees in the awards. How proud are you to be

:21:48.:21:59.

nominated? 2016 was wonderful. It was such a brilliant way to end.

:22:00.:22:03.

Over the moon to be nominated. It is incredible. And the other nominees

:22:04.:22:08.

have done such incredible things so it is such an honour to be amongst

:22:09.:22:13.

them. And lovely to come back here now everything is settled after the

:22:14.:22:17.

games. Now we have come home and we can celebrate amongst all the people

:22:18.:22:21.

that have seen the journey all the way through. A lot of rowers have

:22:22.:22:28.

Oxfordshire connections but not as deeply as you. School here and it's

:22:29.:22:34.

where I first picked up and or and rowing on the river and here was

:22:35.:22:38.

where the seeds were sown for that dream. This is Oxford knighted MDU.

:22:39.:22:53.

Newcastle FA Cup game tomorrow. It's a fantastic occasion tonight and

:22:54.:22:56.

tomorrow these are exactly the sorts of things we are proud to be a.

:22:57.:23:02.

Reflecting on 2016, it was a incredible year for the club and

:23:03.:23:06.

county as a whole. We are here to celebrate the successes of

:23:07.:23:11.

everybody. We really put the club back on the map last season.

:23:12.:23:15.

Everybody enjoyed the promotion. The fact that it is a sell-out tomorrow

:23:16.:23:25.

demonstrates that perfectly. Swindon at Bristol Rovers and MK dons.

:23:26.:23:37.

It's one of the fastest growing sports in the UK.

:23:38.:23:39.

Now a roller derby side in Oxfordshire is looking

:23:40.:23:41.

to attract new players, while at the same time

:23:42.:23:43.

Peter Cooke has been to find out more.

:23:44.:23:47.

The Oxford Roller Derby team have been playing in the city

:23:48.:23:55.

Described as a mixture of roller hockey, rugby and F1 -

:23:56.:24:00.

it's physical and growing rapidly across the UK.

:24:01.:24:03.

There are ten skaters on a flat track, an oval track.

:24:04.:24:11.

And the idea is that from each team there are four blockers

:24:12.:24:15.

who protect the points on each team and one jammer.

:24:16.:24:18.

And the idea is the jammer needs to get through the

:24:19.:24:21.

opposing blockers, and every she passes an opposing blocker's

:24:22.:24:24.

The club's chosen to support the Mental Health charity Mind this

:24:25.:24:36.

year, and will be hosting a number of fundraising events

:24:37.:24:39.

I work in education and mental health is the single biggest

:24:40.:24:44.

issue that's going to face kids in the next ten years or so.

:24:45.:24:47.

Anything we can do to support that issue and

:24:48.:24:54.

that crisis that is going to happen is a good thing.

:24:55.:24:59.

A charity game's being held at the Blackbird Leys Leisure Centre

:25:00.:25:02.

A chance to discover a new sport perhaps for those

:25:03.:25:08.

Lets get the weekend weather now - here's Alexis.

:25:09.:25:25.

Good evening. We've seen a little rain today but overnight tonight

of Sunday, maybe with a frost first thing. These other temperatures in

:26:18.:26:22.

towns and cities but we could see as low as -1 or -2 in the countryside.

:26:23.:26:26.

A potentially frosty start to Sunday. There will be a spell of

:26:27.:26:33.

Reagan, persistent rain mainly light and patchy but the odd moderate to

:26:34.:26:38.

heavy burst through the course of the day and further rain to follow

:26:39.:26:41.

into Monday. This weather front moves its way. Of Wayne and brisk

:26:42.:26:50.

winds. A soggy end to the weekend and start to next week. The outlook

:26:51.:26:57.

tomorrow has some sunshine. Once the rain clears we'll see some brighter

:26:58.:27:01.

spells but the odd shower tomorrow afternoon. Wind coming in from the

:27:02.:27:05.

south-west will be stronger the further south. Sunday has a brisk

:27:06.:27:12.

southerly wind. Rain at times on Sunday. Rain slowly clearing

:27:13.:27:19.

eastwards. That will clear slowly on Monday. Tuesday will have spells of

:27:20.:27:23.

rain but settling down into the middle part of next week.

:27:24.:27:28.

Don't forget you can watch the sports awards on the BBC

:27:29.:27:35.

Hope you have a good weekend - even if you're working.

:27:36.:27:39.

We know you understand the risks associated with your pregnancy.

:27:40.:27:54.

Because I'm smaller, people think my hopes are not so great.

:27:55.:27:57.

You know what it's like when help is needed. You just jump in.

:27:58.:28:05.

Are you saying that he's stalking you now?

:28:06.:28:20.
