The best of BBC Radio this week chosen by Ian McMillan.

On this week's Pick of the Week with Ian McMillan we learn how numbers can really remind us how little we actually know, we find out what happened when one of Dr. Who's assistants took her pink dressing gown off, and we are impressed by John F. Kennedy's TV image when contrasted with that of a perspiring Richard Nixon. There's Opera and Sculpture in Suffolk and crossed lines in Sheffield, and in a searing drama a mother finds out the terrible circumstances of her son's murder from someone who heard his last words. There's comedy, drama, housebricks and the sound of brass bands in the drizzle.
