In this week's Pick of the Week, you can learn some tricks of the trade from surgeons, teachers, lorry-drivers and spies. There's some powerful personal memories of Martin Luther King; a memorable appearance from one of the few teenage girls in literary history to wear a monocle; and the somehow dismaying news that scientists are now utterly certain about the uncertainty principle. Be warned though: there's also some rather rude comedy from among others, George Formby and Woman's Hour's Jenni Murray.
