"I would have looked forward with a great deal more relish when I was 50 and more able to look after myself, but I think I can manage". So says Lord Hailsham of St Marylebone in reply to Sue Lawley's invitation to send him in isolation to the mythical island. During their conversation, he looks back on his career as scholar, lawyer and politician, and he also chooses eight records to entertain him.
