Formula One's Christian Horner

2 hours, 59 minutes
First broadcast:
Monday 10 June 2013

We meet Christian Horner, calling from Canada, after his team's 1st Formula 1 win!

Rev Rob Gillion is the Superman of Pause For Thought (you'll see why...!)

We explore pound pitfalls, and the perils of confusing potatoes with Pesetas, in today's Top Tenuous...

And 10-year old Callum is on the line to tell us the key to a terrific trek up Snowdon...

But there's an apparent lack of ice cream at the peak, so we get to the bottom of this dessert disaster by talking to Alan Kendall, the manager for the Snowdon Mountain Railway!

  • Pause for Thought

    From Rev Rob Gillion, Rector of Holy Trinity Church and St Saviours.

    Now the weather has improved I am shedding clothes but notice I need to shed a few pounds. I know this is true because last week a girl called Carmella joined me for prayer at the church on Monday morning. She is a fitness trainer. After our prayers she handed me her calling card and invited me to join her for a free workout. I assume she noticed I need to be a tad trimmer. I agreed to go after all she had joined me for a spiritual work out. I hoped it would result in turning me into a man of steel. In one sense it has as I'm so stiff I can hardly move. It was a painful experience, but no pain no gain.

    At the same time the brand new superman film opens this week ‘Man of Steel’ I've just learnt that Superman is 75 years old this month and he is still as fit as ever.

    Mind you for me no one can replace the late Christopher Reeves.
    He became a real superman after his riding accident and through his journey as a quadriplegic giving hope to so many. Now there's a real super hero. We all have heroes we worship, obviously at the top of my list is Jesus.
    At the end of John’s Gospel the risen Jesus appears to a downcast doubting Thomas and shows him the wounds in his hands and his side as proof of his love.

    He got me thinking what do we look for in a hero. Is it a man of steel or something different?

    For me a hero is someone who has battled with adversity who understands what it is to suffer, and is able to comfort and challenge others. A hero is someone who comes to the rescue when we are faced with difficult circumstances. Triumph through adversity. That's my kind of hero, someone who is vulnerable and yet strong.

    For I believe that in all of us is a super hero ready to break out.
