Hardeep Singh Kohli makes his selection from the past seven days of BBC Radio

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. You couldn't write it..
