*Correction: Dividing the Union was written by James Graham*

Writer and broadcaster John Waite presents the best of BBC Radio this week.

Be warned - there's a lot of rudeness in Pick of the Week this Sunday. As John Waite discovers, it's open season on being rude about famous people in the newspapers these days. Radio 4 has also just started being rude about architects, too. There's a rather rude joke about Bruce Forsythe, and a rather rude noise from a two hundred year old tortoise.

So join John for his Pick of the Week - surely it'd be rude not to.

Produced by the polite Stephen Garner.
