Personalities from all walks of life share their musical tastes with composer
Michael Berkeley. Today's guest is Terry Waite , former envoy to the Archbishop of Canterbury, whose kidnap and five-year incarceration in war-torn Beirut shocked the world. In this moving discussion, he talks about the role that music has played in his life, including the extraordinary moment when, after four years of solitary confinement, without reading or listening materials of any kind, his captors finally brought him a small portable radio. The first broadcast he tuned in to was the 1991 First Night of the Proms: the music was Elgar's The Dream of Gerontius.
