Sir Peregrine Worsthorne
The castaway in Desert Island Discs this week is newspaper columnist Sir Peregrine Worsthorne. Outspoken and flamboyant, he believes that the columnists' brief is to supply opinions for those who haven't the time to think. He'll be talking to Sue Lawley about his life and work and remembering how his use of a four-letter word on primetime television blighted his career for several years.
