Ian McMillan makes his selection from the past seven days of BBC Radio
On this week's programme we hear the music of the Antarctic ice in a new series of Nature, the tribulations of a Dolly Parton tribute act who wants to be much more than an island in Kenny Rogers's stream, and the radical side of the great cricket commentator John Arlott. We've tales of the transporter bridge in Middlesbrough and the River Dee from its source to the sea, and a phone call to a woman in snowy Nova Scotia by the great Alan Dein. And if you missed this week's revelations about the Chicken Island in Bungay and the identity of the great graphic artist Barney Bubbles, then Pick of the Week will help you out.
