American growers of 'Sue Lawley' might like to know that Sue L is a very well known radio and TV personality in the UK. She used to be a news reader and also a presenter of our much loved Desert Island discs where celebrities are asked to choose 8 favourite pieces of music, a book and a non-useful (to living on a desert island) luxury.
