The BBC Radio 4 programme Desert Island Discs invites castaways to choose eight pieces of music, a book (in addition to the Bible – or a religious text appropriate to that person's beliefs – and the Complete Works of Shakespeare) and a luxury item that they would take to an imaginary desert island, where they will be marooned indefinitely. The rules state that the chosen luxury item must not be anything animate or indeed anything that enables the castaway to escape from the island, for instance a radio set, sailing yacht or aeroplane.

Work in Progress - The lists are incomplete - I am still working on them! This is Part 1 of a two part exercise - the years from 1975 on will follow in a 2nd project. Many of the people listed are fairly obscure to most people, but it seems to be best to list all people and hopefully locate quite a few people on Geni.

Many of these programmes can be heard from the Desert Island Discs website.
