Please click the above image for my festive special with Jo Thoenes (pictured) which aired 28/12/2012 on BBC Radio Oxford (the iplayer link expires 04/01/2013). The segment starts at around 1 hour 30m 30s (after the song ends) and previews my top movies for 2013

I also must briefly point out that I am mistakenly credited as from the Banbury Guardian, which in fact should have been Oxfordshire Guardian.
