The definitive Desert Island Discs

Allow yourself to be cast away in eight glorious decades of the most iconic show on radio. To mark this momentous occasion, ‘The Definitive Desert Island Discs’ focuses on 80 of the most powerful and unforgettable interviews, revisiting every era of Desert Island Disc’s storied history. Reflecting on how times have changed, the book will feature brand new material as castaways are interviewed about their experiences – did the conversation go how they expected? Would Sir Patrick Stewart still take his beloved billiards table (and a shed to keep it in, of course)? And does Hilary Devey stick by her endless supply of Cointreau? Get lost in lists of the weirdest and most wonderful luxury items, most popular tracks and books throughout the years, and more.
