Barack Obama and Billy Bragg, Doc Pascowitz, the 91 year old father of surfing in Israel, and John Howard Griffin the white journalist who lived as a black man in America's deep south, poet and former soldier Theo Snell and astronaut Buzz Aldrin - just some of the voices in this week's impressive line-up of people with amazing stories to tell about the power of poetry, protest, art and sport. Yet it's a programme that would have Lord Reith calling for the transmitters to be shut down! What on earth could he object to? - Find out with Liz Barclay on Pick of the Week.
