On Pick of the Week this week, Sheila McClennon hears about the men who are sleeping in their cars at night rather than admit to their families they have nowhere else to go. There's South America's version of the VW Beetle - the Fusca, and why it's Brazil's favourite little car. Rebecca Front warns about the perils of politeness after her childhood home is taken over by a complete stranger and journalist Grace Dent, wonders what's in a name and if hers can help her achieve a state of Grace. There are the little heard voices of Indian soldiers in Northern France in World War One and Lenny Henry takes on Groucho Marx to imagine his meeting with the poet T S Eliot.
