One thought on “Rosemary Sutcliff BBC Radio Desert Island Discs Record Choice Seven, 1983”
I wonder what she’d have made of Viking Metal, e.g. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fu2bgwcv43o
It makes a very good sound track to some of her books, but I have a feeling she’d turn the radio off as quickly as she could reach it.
