***************************************************************
A biographical and factual radio programme, broadcast on BBC Radio 4, first broadcast on January 29th 1942 and celebrated its 70th anniversary in 2012. Each week a guest aka "castaway" is asked to choose eight pieces of music, a book and a luxury item that they would take if they were to be cast away on a desert island, whilst discussing their lives and the reasons for their choices. It was devised and originally presented by Roy Plomley in 1942 until 1985. Michael Parkinson took over from Roy Plomley until 1988, followed by Sue Lawley and since 2006, the show has been presented by Kirsty Young.
