The current episode of Desert Island Discs featuring poet and artist Imtiaz Dharker is wonderful. She shares snippets from her life and work and tells us about some of her favourite sounds.


Her first choice, the Sachal Jazz Ensemble’s version of Take Five had me bouncing round the house.

Desert Island Discs is the perfect radio programme template. Life, the universe and everything can be discussed with presenter Kirsty Young.

Dharker discussed Pakistan, poetry, Scotland, marriage, India, family, documentary film making, Wales, art and brought along great music.
