We're testing our tear factor in the studio! Are you are crier or a drier? Professor Michael Trimble reveals the research behind his book Why Humans Like to Cry.

We're testing our tear factor in the studio! Are you are crier or a drier?

Professor Michael Trimble reveals the research behind his book, 'Why Humans Like to Cry'.

We have two cracking kids back on the show for a fanfare. 9 year old Callum Finley from Chipping Norton tells us about his 'Big Boys' swimming gala, and 10 year old Lottie Rooke-James from Chilham talks about her Cheerleading competition.

Mark Radcliffe gives us a history lesson in On This Day.

We learn about the terrific Trebuchet's when our Mystery Guest, Dr Peter Vemming, calls in from Denmark.

And Canon Ann Easter shares some wise words for Pause for Thought.
