Simon Cox's Pick of the Week.
This week's programme goes on a sensory journey, finding out how touch can improve the health of premature babies and hears from the "fumeheads" trying to shake up perfumes. There are a number of firsts; the collaboration between Radio 3 and 6 Music at the Proms and the quiz that persuades royalty to perform. There is the tale of a gritty Scouse football legend and the Caribbean cricket diplomats. And there is plenty of advice on faking - from copying a famous building to being a celebrity - or even a person as we hear about Roxxy the pleasure bot.
