On Last Word with John Wilson this week:

Test Match star Trevor Bailey is remembered, both at the crease and in the commentary box, by his friend Henry Blofeld.

Dr Ernest McCulloch pioneered stem-cell research which led to the first bone-marrow transplants.

John Paul Getty III lost his ear to kidnappers, was snubbed by his billionaire grandfather and suffered a crippling stroke. We hear the story of massive wealth and family tragedy.

And rock star Greg Lake tells us how, when he was putting together a new band, blues guitarist Gary Moore passed the audition simply by 'tuning up'.
