This year we have tales of heroism from the Arctic convoys and from a devoted wife losing her husband to dementia. Find out why Brian Blessed nearly killed a fellow soldier ..... over Sibelius, about Sir David Attenborough's close shave with a lion and what happened when Rob Bryden supplanted Ken Bruce. Plus, this year there are plenty of bees - on the roof of a bank in the City of London, down in Hundred Acre Wood and yes, inside the World at One studio.
