Don McCullin has won an enormous reputation for his photographic coverage of the many wars which have torn the world apart in the last 20 years.

In conversation with Roy Plomley, he talks about his exceedingly dangerous career and about his travels, which have even taken him to a desert island, and, in light of this experience, he chooses the eight records he would like to have for a prolonged island sojourn.
