BBC – Desert Island Discs – Castaway: Rosemary Sutcliff

In conversation with Roy Plomley, on October 1st 1983 Rosemary Sutcliff talked on the famous Desert Island Discs radio programme about her career and about the difficulties caused by arthritis since she was a child. She chose the eight records that she would take to the mythical island.

She also chose her book: Kim by Rudyard Kipling. And her luxury:  flowers delivered daily by bottle.

All this courtesy of the new BBC Desert Island Discs archives – but sadly not (yet?) the archive of the programme itself.
