David Linley

This week the castaway on Desert Island Discs is Viscount Linley. The son of Princess Margaret and the Earl of Snowdon has always made a point of playing down his royal connections. Having set up his own company specialising in bespoke furniture, David Linley is now one of the country's most fervent advocates for modern craftsmanship. In conversation with Sue Lawley, he talks about his life and work and chooses eight records to take to the mythical island.
