On the programme this week, why the Swedes are bothered by badgers and a train passenger by unnecessary public announcements. There's the extraordinarily brave and articulate 14 year old girl who's spoken out about the brutality of the Taliban, and the 21st century technology that is revealing the horrors of Treblinka. If you like music, there's the Czech cellist Milos Sadlo and the Madagascan girl singers whose name means bringing joy. Which is what writer Shirley Hughes did for many of you this week, when she took to the floor once more with a teenage beau.

That's all in Pick of the Week with Sheila McClennon
