Actor Martin Sheen, star of TV drama The West Wing and the film Apocalypse Now, joins Kirsty Young to choose his Desert Island discs.
Kirsty Young's castaway is the actor Martin Sheen.
In recent years he has won great acclaim and a Golden Globe for playing the leader of the free world in the hugely successful political drama The West Wing. He's made more than a 100 movies, including Apocalypse Now, Badlands and The Departed. For him, work is often a family affair, in Wall Street he acted alongside his son Charlie Sheen and in his latest movie, The Way he was directed by another of his children - Emilio Estevez.
But away from the film set, he's an activist and campaigner - he's been arrested around 70 times and is motivated, he says by faith and conscience above politics.
