BBC Radio 4 has made more of its archive available to the public, including Desert Island Discs. The show is one of BBC Radio’s longest-running programmes, having launched in 1942 and is still going strong. Eric Clapton was a guest on 10 September 1989. The premise of the programme is simple: guests are invited to choose eight discs, a book and a luxury to take with them as they’re castaway on a mythical desert island. They’re given the complete works of Shakespeare and the Bible.
