In the crowd, all alone

Radio: MORE than four million people will spend this Christmas alone. Statistics of this kind are a seasonal ritual; but Professor Christina Victor told us on Woman's Hour (Radio 4) last Friday that Christmas was not the worst time of the year for people who feel lonely

Judge ’em, cowboy

Radio: IT IS a rare thing indeed to hear the judiciary praised in terms more divine than human. In this country, it would be unthinkable to imagine a judge's being described as having a hotline to God - except in a deeply satirical sense

Doctor at large

Radio: IT IS enough to make even the most composed patient into a hypochondriac. In the 13 different organ systems of our body, there are at least 60,000 things that could go wrong

Curry and crumble

Radio: IF THERE was any doubt about the power and influence which can be exerted by apple crumble and custard, then it will have been dispelled by last week's edition of Hardeep's Sunday Lunch 

Home from home

Radio: MOVING house is said to be one of the most stressful aspects of modern life, along with bereavement, divorce, and setting a new online password

Payment of a debt

Radio: PARTS of the installation of ceramic poppies at the Tower of London are to remain in place for a while longer. That the campaign for the project's extension has been led by the Prime Minister and Boris Johnson will make the ears prick up of anyone who listened to The Why Factor: Memorialisation 

Infrequent laughter

Radio: The Frequency of Laughter is a six-part history of radio comedy

Chill-out chant

Radio: As Richard Coles described, in Chant, the double album of Gregorian chant, Canto Gregoriano,  recorded by the monks of Silos Abbey sold more than five million copies in the 1990s

Greatly exaggerated

Radio: Matt Thompon's documentary was a joy: full of bonkers theories, and plenty of archive material. And, in case you thought that this was all a bit of a laugh, there was Professor Diane Purkiss, of Oxford University, to remind us that conspiracy theories are, in fact, one of the most dangerous aspects of the modern media age

Germany über alles

Radio: FROM Goethe to sausages, Germany: Memories of a nation (Radio 4) is on an epic journey to uncover the history and myths that make up the German psyche

Cold-call Pope

Radio: ONE of the most popular comic articles doing the rounds of Italian journalists recently has been "Top-ten tips for when the Pope phones."
