Mark Lawson talks to Mark Knopfler, one of the most prolific songwriters of his generation about his early life and influences, the years with Dire Straits and his quiet contempt for modern TV talent shows.
Mark Knopfler has been writing and performing for over 40 years, first with his band Dire Straits, and since their split in the mid nineties, as a solo performer. He has collaborated with numerous stars from Tina Turner to James Taylor and Bob Dylan and is about to start another sell out tour in 2013.
