Soon to be available on Iplayer is Anthony Julius’ spot on Desert Island Discs.
The conceit of Desert Island Discs is as follows:
Desert Island Discs was created by Roy Plomley in 1942, and the format is simple: a guest is invited by Kirsty Young to choose the eight records they would take with them to a desert island.
They also get to choose a luxury and a book. The hypothetical castaway gets the complete works of Shakespeare and the King James Bible.
In Anthony Julius’ case, they substituted the Torah for the KJB.
Asked Anthony (and I paraphrase)
“I’m a student of English Literature – I’d like the King James Bible, please”
