This week's Ten Things pays homage to the legendary Eurovision Song Contest scoring system in a personal selection of ten programmes selected from across network radio and TV.

That's as far as the Eurovision association goes, however. For the sake of clarity, there's absolutely no ranking implied in the following list. 

1. Congratulations to Radio 1's Newsbeat who picked up a Sony Award earlier this week
2. On Friday, Radio 2 listeners made up their minds as to the best UK Eurovision song ever
3. Radio 3 has some listener's notes for Friday's live BBC Symphony Orchestra concert.
4. Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby shared Britten's War Requiem on the Cultural Exchange
5. Five Live's Richard Bacon broadcast from terminal cancer sufferer Steve Evans' home on Thursday.
6. After (nearly) 50 years, we finally learn The Name of the Doctor on BBC One on Saturday. 
7. The Chelsea Flower Show kicks off on Sunday. The first BBC Two broadcast is on Monday. 
8. BBC Three airs Cleveland Captives: What Really Happened? on Tuesday. 
10. Ahead of the BBC Proms, Anthony Pappano presents a guide to Wagner's Ring Cycle on BBC Four.
12. Finally, CBBC's new series Strange Hill High is series-stacked on BBC iPlayer. 

Rest assured, we'll return to a more standard numbering system next time.
