Ed Miliband: 'Parents welcomed us into politics'

22 November 2013 Last updated at 16:55 GMT

Ed Miliband has attributed his interest in politics to his parents, in a programme for BBC Radio 4.

The Labour leader spoke to Kirsty Young for an edition of Desert Island Discs, which is due to air on Sunday.

In October, Mr Miliband called for an apology from the Daily Mail newspaper, after it published an article about his late father, Ralph, entitled ''The Man Who Hated Britain.''

Listen to Desert Island Discs on BBC Radio 4 at 11:15 GMT on Sunday 24 November and 09:00 GMT on Friday 29 November, or afterwards on the BBC iPlayer.
