Libiamo, ne' lieti calici (Brindisi) (from La traviata)
Soloist: Placido Domingo, Ileana Cotrubas Orchestra: Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra
The castaway in this week's Desert Island Discs is Sir Robin Day. He'll be talking to Sue Lawley about going with his father to hear Churchill speak at a political rally when he was a boy, recalling his days at post-war Oxford, the early days at ITN and his long association with politicians in front of the microphone.
