Sarfraz Manzoor chooses his BBC Radio highlights.
Journalist Sarfraz Manzoor with the best of BBC Radio this week.
We have a globe-hopping programme this week: in China we explore the popularity of academies teaching British etiquette, in Rome we listen to a multi ethnic orchestra hoping to bring different communities together, in India and Wales there's a unique musical collaboration fusing two ancient art forms and in Manchester a photographer's image of drunk Mancunians on New Years' Eve has been compared to the great works of art.
The pick of the BBC Radio iPlayer is also Manchester themed with an episode of Soul Music featuring The Smiths from December 2014, and we also hear singer songwriter Bernard Sumner discussing the Beatles and Rob Bryden duets with Pavarotti.
Produced by Stephen Garner
The Pick Production team Kay Bishton and Elodie Chatelain
