Desert Island Discs - Judi Dench
18th March 2012
Desert Island Discs is a long-running BBC Radio 4 programme first broadcast on 29 January 1942. It is the second longest-running radio programme, and is the longest-running factual programme in the history of radio. Originally devised and presented by Roy Plomley, each week a famous guest ("castaway") is asked to choose eight pieces of music, a book and a luxury item for their imaginary stay on the island, while discussing their lives and the reasons for their choices.
On Sunday 12th April 1998, between the release of her second and third outings as Bond's superior, Judi Dench was the guest
for that week's edition of Desert Island Discs.
Guests are also invited to select a single book
and luxury item, for which Dench selected an Ordnance Survey map of the world, and The Man with a Glove painting by Titian, respectively.
