By Judith Harries

A popular radio show that has been enjoyed on BBC Radio 4 since 1942, Desert Island Discs is a one-to-one interview with a guest who has to imagine being stranded on a desert island and is asked to select their eight favourite ‘discs’ or pieces of music, along with one book and a luxury.

Many of the interviews recorded over the years are available on the BBC iPlayer, so you are sure to be able to find a guest that you think will interest the children.
