The Lark Ascending
Soloist: Iona Brown Orchestra: Academy of St Martin in the Fields Conductor: Sir Neville Mariner
Sue Lawley's castaway this week is the actress Dame Judi Dench.
She's been delighting audiences for some 40 years, on film, television and the stage. It's partly this versatility that makes her so special. Nominated for an Oscar for the film Mrs Brown, in which she played an ageing Queen Victoria, she says the difference between film and the theatre is that on stage she can make an audience believe that she's a tall, willowy blond, when in reality she is five foot nothing.
