Val McDermid makes her selection from the past seven days of BBC Radio

Story is what comes first for crime writer Val McDermid. And this week on Pick of the Week, stories are flying thick and fast. There's a celebration of the BBC National Short Story Award, a probing of the secret stories that lurk in family histories and an exploration of the way we find stories to explain our darkest instincts. From the sublime to the ridiculous, from the harrowing to the heartwarming, from the bizarre to the brilliant, all human life is here.
