Gary Davies 9.30AM, RADIO 2 ★★★★

Gary is a most dependable fellow when it comes to looking after other people’s programmes, and he’ll be sitting in for Ken Bruce this week. Gary, who has his own Friday-night show, Sounds Of The 80s, will include Ken’s usual features - including Spandau Ballet’s Tony Hadley choosing his Tracks Of My Years - and he’ll bring one or two of his own wheezes to the show.

The Debrief 10.45AM (FM), 7.45PM, RADIO 4 ★★★★

Katherine Jakeways, who’s a dab hand at writing comedy dramas for radio, has come up with another winner. All this week, we listen in as Hannah and Mark return from a social event, spending the journey gossiping and dishing the dirt on everyone involved.

The Punch 1.45PM, RADIO 4 (FM) ★★★★

In 2011, an argument outside a pub in Nottingham turned violent - and then fatal. Punches were thrown, and Jacob Dunne knocked trainee paramedic James Hodgkinson to the ground. Nine days later, James died, and Jacob went to prison, but has since turned his life around. It has been a hard journey, and one that he has taken with the help of his victim’s grieving parents. In this week-long series, we hear how Jacob has now become a family man and respected member of his community, and wants to follow a career helping others.

The Great Gallery Tours 4PM, RADIO 4 (FM) ★★★

A woman in a blue night jacket stands in front of a window, reading a letter. Vermeer’s famous painting seems simple, yet it is full of mystery and symbols. Simon Schama takes us on a tour of Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum, describing some of the masterpieces that are held there and telling us the stories behind the paintings. SJ
