Simon Parkes makes his selection from the past seven days of BBC radio.

Big themes on Pick of the Week - enduring friendship, rivalry, feuds, jealousy. and tunnels. And fitting somewhere in-between there's Benjamin Zephaniah's view of Winnie The Pooh and how a bottle of pungent mustard sauce made the journey all the way from Calcutta in India to a remote Hampshire rectory - and in the 18th century to boot!
Join Simon Parkes for myriad treats in this week's Pick of the Week.
