Gerry Northam makes his selection from the past seven days of BBC Radio

This week's Pick Of The week with Gerry Northam includes a candid confession of persistent self-doubt from Alastair Campbell, the former powerhouse of Downing Street. There's comedy from Henning Wehn and Ed Reardon; drama from the streets of Liverpool where Judas Iscariot used to be burnt in effigy every Good Friday; refugees from the repressive regime in Uzbekistan which is forcibly sterilising its female population; and a dramatic recreation of the morse-code signals from the sinking Titanic just after she hit the iceberg a hundred years ago.

We gain a glimpse into the psyche of Hitler's Deputy, Rudolf Hess. And Woody Guthrie's daughter Nora finds some shocks in the songs he left unrecorded.
