Drive / June 29th- July 3rd, 2009

This week on Drive we cheered on the fantastic - but ultimately doomed to the curse of the semi-finals - Andy Murray as he nanquished opponent after opponent on his way to a brave defeat to eventual runner-up Andy Roddick at Wimbledon. 

In the studio, work-experience Will.I.Am  was desperate for revenge in 90's vs 00's, and here was how things panned out :-

Work Expereince Will.I.Am (00's) VERSUS the undefeated Paul '90's kid' Seaton :

Round #1 - Best Actor

00's = Will Smith -12% - 88% Kevin Spacey 90's.  PAUL WINS

Round #2 - Best Rock FrontMan

00's = Dave Grohl - 64% - 36% Liam Gallagher.  WILL WINS

Round #3 - Best TV Chat Show Host

00's = Jonathan Ross 56% - 44% Sir Michael Parkinson .  WILL WINS

Round #4 - Best Comedy Film

00's = Shaun of the Dead 58% - 42% Ace Ventura : Pet Detective.  WILL WINS!

So, after a great start for me, I was taught a lesson by the schoolkid!! 3-1 to work experience Will.I.Am, who became the first and only competitor to triumph in 90's vs 00's...

Also this week, I interviewed Ken Dawkes from the Brentwood Tennis Club, not 24 hours after the latest ever match at Wimbledon, Andy Murray eventually prevailing over the Swiss star Stanislas Wawrinka in the fifth set at 10.38pm!! Ken told us about the 8 courts and special events the Brentwood tennis club hold each and every year. If you're local and want to get involved in the club, call 01277 220465 for more details.

Also on the show, we spoke to Councillor Mark Reed about the recent changes in Brentwood's High Street, and when the roads would be open for business once again. 

Next week; can Work Experience Holly keep up the success of Will? or can I gain vengeance in 90's vs 00's? Only one way to find out, keep it tuned to
