Young Again

10:00 AM GMT+1 on October 1, 2023

    Young Again - Oh, what a joy it is to hear Kirsty Young again. In this new BBC Radio 4 series, she asks a famous guest to reflect on their younger selves. Essentially, what would they say to them if they were given the chance?

    The themes that come up, from growing up to family, all feel very much like an episode of Desert Island Discs (without the music). It is, of course, a show that Young hosted herself for more than a decade, before having to stand down due to health reasons. But, to be honest with you, this point is not a complaint. You’re just happy she’s got a space to interview interesting people again. There’s several episodes out so far, including with  actor Daniel Kaluuya and supermodel Linda Evangelista.
