Truth is stranger than fiction, they say - and Pick of the Week on Sunday certainly bears that out. John Waite will be hearing how a father and son from Manchester travelled to Ecuador to track down their mother's killer. How President Reagan was given the all-clear by his secret service guards, even though he'd been shot by a would-be assassin. Did you know that Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner has the IQ of a genius, and wanted the magazine to be a political document. Or that you can get so attached to chickens that you chat to them and even take them on holiday. The truth, the whole truth .. in Pick of the Week
