To be or not to be - the thoughts of the Gravedigger of the Year this week. Plus fifty memorable meals to help you get over someone's death. Why the people of the Bronze Age would have loved the X-factor, and why sleeping on a floor in Moss side leads to a love of Chariots of Fire. All that, and as the Sound of Cinema season continues, the most famous bit of movie music in all film history. To find out what - join me, John Waite, for Pick of the Week.
