Sam was back in the studio to help out on the show because Honor is taking another week off, as she has not quite recovered from Mayor Broderick's creepy attentions. While Sam's position as studio assistant is temporary, she has seemingly started to take over a little. She's decorated the walls in her favourite colours (zombie skin green and nightmare blue) and has hung up pictures of her family everywhere. We heard her on the phone to a locksmith trying to get a new lock fitted on the studio door. Basically, it appears that she might have moved in. Hopefully Honor gets back before Sam gets too comfortable.
Ok, that was a lie, but Simon was in the studio to talk about the UK box office, new releases in the cinema, and his pick of films on free-to-air TV for the coming week.

This week's featured track is Perfect Love Affair by Shaun Escoffery:
These are fabulously easy to make and really add the 'WOW' factor to any party. Especially popular with children, you can adapt colours to suit a theme or favourites.
Using Lucy's classic vanilla cup cake recipe, which you can find on her website, split the mixture into as many bowls as you want colours. Lucy recommends using colour paste rather than liquid. Then divide your coloured mixtures equally between cases and bake for approximately 20 minutes at 160 (for fan ovens).
For the rainbow coloured icing, simply layer the different colours in your piping bag and start decorating!

This week we heard the latest on the long running saga of the plans to build an incinerator at New Barnfield in Hatfield. Val from Welwyn and Hatfield Friends of the Earth updated us. She summarized the state of play so far as follows…
Hertfordshire County Council (HCC) entered into a contract with Veolia Environmental Services (VES) in July 2011 for the provision of residual waste treatment services. Veolia proposed to build and operate an energy from waste incinerator at the Council owned New Barnfield site in Hatfield. Following a public inquiry and the subsequent inspector’s report, the planning application for the facility was refused by the Secretary of State on 7 July 2014. As a result of a successful High Court challenge by VES the application was referred back to the Secretary of State for re-determination.
All interested parties have recently submitted further representations to the Planning Inspectorate and have been advised that a decision will be issued on or before 16 July 2015.
In the meantime interim waste contracts are in place at existing incinerators, initially until 2018 with the opportunity to extend until 2021. The interim contracts are said to be achieving savings on previous years’ costs and increasing diversion from landfill. The percentage of household waste reused, recycled, or composted in Hertfordshire continued to improve in 2013/14 to 49.2%, an increase on the 2012/13 total of 45.5%.
Under the terms of the contract, HCC has requested a revised Project Plan from VES which is to be submitted by 7 July 2015. Should planning permission for the proposed incinerator at New Barnfield be granted, the Council has said publicly that three options will be considered and a decision made by the end of 2015:
to proceed with the incinerator;
to proceed with the revised Project Plan;
to terminate the contract with Veolia.

Looking ahead, Gail and Catherine from Transition St.Albans came into the studio to tell us about a brand new event in the St.Albans calender, Sustainable St.Albans Week. In the last week of November, it has been timed to be in the week preceding the Paris climate change talks.
Any group, company, individual within the St.Albans District is invited to run an event aimed in some way at making us more sustainable. Over 30 organizations have already signed up to run events as diverse as an eco-jobs fair, tree pruning training, a film showing and a bring and buy book swap. Participating groups so far include various faith groups, schools, the university and many more.

Firstly, when Simon had the first of his usual Friday afternoon diva tantrums (they occur at 4:06pm, 5:17pm, 5:19pm, 6:24pm and 6:30pm - 7:00pm) Sam stepped in and, with a combination self-assurance and swift, brutal violence that only a career in science can teach you, swiftly struck Simon around the cheek with a glass beaker that she carries with her in case of scientific emergency. Simon was shocked, as he was in the middle of setting a new personal record of 'longest time without being glassed'. He had made it a whole 9 days without someone hitting him and now Sam had ruined it. The shock was such that he actually presented the film guide in a relatively reasonable and knowledgeable way. Sadly, it's doubtful that the technique will work again, but Danny has promised to keep glassing him just in case.
