8:40 Feature interview: Winds of change at Oxford University
Colin Bundy, the warden of Green College at Oxford University talks to Chris Laidlaw.

In Mediawatch this week - we'll hear from a journalist who's lifted the lid on dodgy dealings in British newsrooms - and who's rubbed his peers up the wrong way by telling them they're fast becoming 'churnalists' who recycle information peddled by the PR industry. Also on the programme - we look at how the media here handled the so called 'scare in mid air' which was reported to be New Zealand's first ever attempted hijacking of a passenger plane. And we also look into how Flight of The Chonchords became the tallest poppies in town.
