Martin Wainwright makes his selection from the past seven days of BBC Radio.

Find out who put the 'admin' into Badminton this week, and how the birds of Wormwood Scrubs set one prisoner on the path to a new life. We hear from the cast of York Mystery plays, the voice of the Sixties Don McLean and a warrior and an elf in Mosley Bog, deep in the suburbs of Birmingham. That and the radio pirate who survived for a fortnight on salad cream mixed with instant coffee grounds
