My Teenage Diary, Series 4 Episode 4 of 6

30 minutes
First broadcast:
Wednesday 18 July 2012

My Teenage Diary returns with six more brave celebrities ready to revisit their formative years by opening up their intimate teenage diaries, and reading them out in public for the very first time.

IN this fourth programme in the series, comedian Rufus Hound is joined by writer Toby Young who revisits his teenage years, when he had a lot of fun playing knock down ginger, shooting pea shooters, and skateboarding - but let his academic work suffer.

He reflects on his mis-spent youth and talks about how it has changed his perceptions of young offenders today.

Producer: Harriet Jaine
A Talkback production for BBC Radio 4.
