Ernie Rea unearths the answers to some intriguing questions in his Pick of the Week.

Just who was Venanzio Rauzinni? Well he was a contemporary of Mozart who could hit top C like a woman but who performed like a man.

And Robin Hood, did he really wear tights? What did a lady require sartorially if she was invited for a weekend with King George the Fifth? Why would anyone want to write pop songs about Swindon? And where can you find a shop that advertises itself as a Purveyor of Bespoke Sandwiches."

Ernie Rea makes his selection from the past seven days of BBC Radio

There's lot of sixties nostalgia on Ernie Rea's Pick of the Week.

The Beatles, Roger Daltrey of The Who, Little Richard, Joan Bakewell and the late Mary Whitehouse all give their take on what made the sixties so special.

But its not all sex and rock n roll.

There's the shocking tale of The Travelling Electric Chair and the radio reporter who went to extraordinary lengths to capture live on mic the surge of power that signalled the end for a condemned man.

And the uplifting tale of the soldier left stranded when the flotilla of little boats left Dunkirk and who was finally reunited with his family five years later.

Rich pickings indeed during the last week.

Drama from a train platform in Highlands of Scotland to Jackie Kay's odyssey to find her birth father down the Red Dust Road in Nigeria; a collection of programmes that explore and expound the notion of family and fatherhood, but from very different perspectives.

We also hear a little about former Post man, Trades Union leader and Home Secretary Alan Johnson's failure to be a Rockstar.

And what happened when Lord Mandelson and Ricky Gervais found themselves in the same live radio studio.

With a danish pastry.

John Waite makes his selection from the past seven days of BBC Radio

John Waite turns super-sleuth for Pick of the Week on Sunday. Tracking down the tortured beginnings of the musical "Evita", and the no-less tortured home-life of that nice couple of homicidal maniacs, the Macbeths. He turns his detective skills to revealing why famous fictional detectives are murdered by their creators. And what happened to a whole town - it's there on the map, but seems to have disappeared in reality. As to how you get a tune out of a series of cats - well, that's a three pipe problem. See if John can crack it by tuning in to Pick of the Week. The game's afoot at 6.15.

We've got the first snort of a new born lamb, the discreet sibilance of a genius sucking his teeth, and the giggles that you get when you're nibbled by fish.

It's a busy week on Pick of the Week this week which sees Steve Delaney, creator of Radio 4's Count Arthur Strong, travelling the globe, economy class of course, stopping off in Africa, with Fela Kuti, passing through Jamaica with Lenny Henry and popping over to Nashville with Suzi Quatro.

Pausing only to have a quick listen to Tony Blackburn, take in a little bit of politics and experience Sore Fingers in the Cotswolds.

Which hopefully you can get some ointment for.

All without leaving the kitchen.

How's that for reducing your carbon footprint!

John Waite makes his selection from the past seven days of BBC Radio

In Pick of the Week this Remembrance Sunday, John Waite will be looking back at the very first such commemoration in 1919.

When, the trauma of the Great War being so fresh, the whole nation fell silent for what was to become the traditional two minutes.

Ships at sea dropped anchor to cut their engines as Big Ben struck - even the trains criss-crossing the country stopped in their tracks.

He'll also be hearing how the "king of bling" met "The king of showbiz" - when Jimmy Savile became pals with Elvis Presley.

And Enid Blyton comes back from the grave to defend her depiction of the golliwog - in an exchange with comedian Richard Herring that is not for the faint-hearted - or the politically correct!

In Pick of the Week, we rock out with the sweet transvestites of Transylvania, as well as dancing with the fabulous Gene Kelly as we waltz through his life with Len Goodman.

There's sex too with the ever-so modest French philosopher Bernard Henri Levy.

And we can't do without a bit of money - or should that be a lot of money - as we hear a surprising account of how it feels to become suddenly, seriously rich.

This week a gastronomic festival puts Budleigh Salterton on the European Carte du Cuisine and an Italian marathon runner has to be helped across the Olympic finishing line after too much champagne en route.

Not a problem for the fell runners tackling over 70 miles and 42 peaks in the Lakes or the composer who's been inspired to set their feat to music.

There are fake sob stories, bad boys and shock eliminations and a reminder that the American Dance Hall Marathons were the 1920s equivalent of reality TV.

And how gaffer tape came to the rescue of a Primary School's Nativity Play in Scotland.

In his Pick of the Week on Christmas day, John Waite will be discovering how sex - for unmarried women - began in 1962, while insulting the French and our other European neighbours is as old as the hills. Professor Brian Cox gets it in the neck for his teeth-whitening products and anti -ageing creams; and a modern Christmas song classic is fashioned out of a drunken, dissolute New York down-and-out. Richard Coles reports from the northern lights - the aurora borealis, not the Blackpool Illuminations.

John Waite makes his selection from the past seven days of BBC Radio

India, Russia, the United States.Tooting. John Waite goes globe-trotting for his Pick of the Week programmes on Sunday. He also introduces us to a new Bangladeshi detective, who's the sub-continent's answer to Columbo.

And Dudley Moore puts a British twist on Beethoven by imagining how Colonel Bogey might sound if composed by Germany's genius.

There's also a chance to hear some top Broadway musicals that the public didn't get to see - as they were meant for corporate America; a hymn to higher sales targets.

So, don't miss the showstopper about disposable hospital wear "I never enjoyed an operation more" by joining John for his Pick of the Week this Sunday evening at six fifteen.

There's a menagerie of exotic creatures in Pick of the Week; we'll be watching out for the three booted long lashed weedle nittle, inspired by Edward Lear and brought to life by cartoonist Ralph Steadman. Geoffrey Palmer gives the performance of a lifetime as a neurotic hermit crab, and there's the dark horse of typography, bring on,..the ampersand.

Beyond the weird and wonderful, the programme's diving right into the heart of the biggest of themes, life and death on the frontline examined by John Simpson, the near impossible challenge of coping after the death of a child, and the healing and redemptive role of music.

This week the mythical monarchy of Ruritania - why has a country that doesn't exist captured the creative imagination so? Rebecca Front reveals why Mike Leigh was less than impressed with her unintentional poltergeist impression and Rhona Cameron lurches from one hopeless crush to another - as she revisits her teenage Diary.

There are the letters which kept a family together after their sons were sent to fight on the Russian Front

And those iconic blondes Marilyn Monroe and Eva Peron, who decades after they both died in their thirties, are still casting a spell over the public.

That's Pick of the Week with Sheila McClennon on Sunday evening at a quarter past six.

Stewart Henderson makes his selection from the past seven days of BBC Radio

He was a brooding, beaten Hamlet, a besotted Marc Anthony and a supreme verse speaker. But who was Richard Burton, the man? His soon to be published private diaries are heard for the first time.

The story of Irish soldiers who joined the British army during the Second World War, and were subsequently denied employment and benefits in their homeland, is told.

There's also a tale of tango addiction, that's the dance not the drink, smouldering across an Argentinian dance floor. And poet Daljit Nagra recalls his 1970's childhood in the suspicious suburbs of West London.

This week's Pick of the Week contains plenty of BIG themes - Blame, Blasphemy, Guilt, Betrayal, Hubris - and, in fact, quite a lot of these were evident in a programme about Larry, the Downing Street cat. The poor chap's got two bosses and doesn't know which way to turn. We also uncover the bizarre subculture known as steampunk - so bonkers it's almost impossible to describe - and also find out what unlikely company the Queen has been keeping in the final few instalments of the New Elizabethans.

This week - something for everyone. From Donny Osmond's eyebrows to the cheese that was meant to be the saviour of the British Dairy Industry. Donny's now a grandfather but whatever happened to Lymeswold? Captain Crieff gets his medals out for some minor European royalty, an old rocker talks movingly of why he's going on the road for what really will be the very last time and an ancient mariner explains why a sextant holds precious memories.

And resilience and tranquillity - the two qualities Burmese politician and Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi believes helped her during years of house arrest. Useful one would imagine - if she were marooned on a desert island.

The best of BBC Radio, chosen by Ernie Rea.

Ernie Rea's Pick of the Week includes programmes marking significant anniversaries. On the 20th anniversary of the death of James Bulger, his father Ralph talks powerfully of the impact on him and his family. A British Prisoner of War who witnessed, first hand, the fire bombing of Dresden describes graphically the horrors he saw. And there's a fictional account of the real life story of a teenage boy murdered by racist thugs in Mississippi. To lighten the mood, the comedienne Susan Calman reflects on the music she simply cannot have at her wedding. And on the week when we celebrated the patron saint of love, we have some suitably romantic poetry.

Ernie Rea's choices:

Susan Calman is Convicted - Radio 4

Tell Me the Truth About Love - Radio 4

Book of the Week - Mad Girl's Love Song - Radio 4

On Pick of the week this week join Antonia Quirke on the water where she encounters poets, child prodigies, sea turtles and lost parents. A voyage - sometimes perilous and full of longing that pushes and pulls down the Euphrates and the Tigris. Tides rising fast.

There's a sharp idea for the Chancellor in Pick of the Week: why not tax pets?! It could pay off the national debt!

There's the bus trip of Chinese tourists off to see the UK's iconic sights.like Old Trafford and a certain magical café in Edinburgh. There's jazz from Louis Armstrong, and Banjo, yes, Banjo from actor Steve Martin.

And a look "the eroding coastline of British normality' with Jon Ronson and a man who may have "intermittent explosive disorder". Which sounds pretty painful

Sheila McClennon's Pick of the Week

This week the quietest room in the world swiftly followed by the noisiest band whilst writer AL Kennedy just wants somewhere peaceful to work. Maybe best not to join the aspiring writers bedding down amongst the non fiction in a Parisian book store then.

Dangerous Visions: Death Duty - Radio 4

Drama on 3 - Babbage - Radio 3

Simon Cox's Pick of the Week.

This week's programme goes on a sensory journey, finding out how touch can improve the health of premature babies and hears from the "fumeheads" trying to shake up perfumes. There are a number of firsts; the collaboration between Radio 3 and 6 Music at the Proms and the quiz that persuades royalty to perform. There is the tale of a gritty Scouse football legend and the Caribbean cricket diplomats. And there is plenty of advice on faking - from copying a famous building to being a celebrity - or even a person as we hear about Roxxy the pleasure bot.
