The best of BBC Radio this week with Benjamin Zephaniah

This week we celebrate three great lives, one from South Africa, one from Alabama, and one from Northamptonshire. I speak of Nelson Mandela, Hank Williams, and John Clare of course. There is also comedy, music, drama, history and we have also worked out the perfect definition of infinity. Yes we have it all on this week's Pick Of The Week, and just to keep the presenter happy there is even a bit poetry.
