With the British Grand Prix roaring into action at Silverstone, the former voice of Formula 1 Murray Walker talks to Sian Williams about his career, values and Michael Schumacher. There will also be topical debate on the big ethical stories of the week.

Animal rights campaigners say it should be banned altogether. But scientists involved in animal research point to its importance in developing new drugs and treatments. What’s your view?

Are there too many charities?
There are too many charities doing the same thing and competing unnecessarily, says the outgoing chief executive of the Charity Commission.
There are 160,000 registered charities in England and Wales. The commission receives about 30 applications to start a new one every week, though not all get off the ground.
So should it be made harder to register a new charity - and are we suffering from charity fatigue?
Are Christian assemblies in schools ‘meaningless’?
So is it a tradition that is no longer relevant? Or does it go to the very core of British tradition and identity?
