Frank Cottrell-Boyce chooses Irish child storyteller on desert island discs

Rosemary Sutcliff was a story-teller. Children’s writer and  film author , Frank Cottrell-Boyce, guest on Desert Island Discs today, chose a wonderful story-telling Irish girl as one of his pieces of ‘music’. He could hardly contain his glee listening, presenter Kirsty Young said! Listen here on BBC iPlayer at 26.10 mins into the recording (if it is still there: I think BBC only allows Desert Island discs for a week or so on iPlayer).
