Terry O'Neill

For forty years, the photographer Terry 0'Neill has been capturing the rich and famous on film - from Sir Laurence Olivier and Mick Jagger to Brigitte Bardot and Kate Moss. He talks to Sue Lawley about his childhood, his glamorous career and his chances of surviving as a 'castaway' on a desert island. He chooses eight records to take with him to the mythical island.
