I’ve hosted a gathering with a twist. All my guests are from beyond the grave, longtime heroes brought back to life by the wonders of the radio archive.

I am joined by former chancellor Denis Healey, comedy legend Les Dawson, feminist pioneer Nancy Astor, Hollywood great Danny Kaye and others, for half an hour of mesmerising and unexpected conversation. We discuss everything from politics to cookery and from playing the piano to overcoming insecurity – illuminating a series of great lives.
