Ian Interviews Sir Roger Bannister

September 24, 2012

By Ian Pinnell, Radio Cherwell

On Friday 21st September 2012, Emily's Big Walk took place at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford.

I was sent to cover the walk, as part of my role as Programme Controller with hospital radio station - Radio Cherwell. I interviewed various people, from organisers to patients, but one of my favourite interviews was with Sir Roger Bannister.
