This year Desert Island Discs has been celebrating its 75th anniversary. Roy Plomley, who devised the programme, explained how it all started in his book, Desert Island Discs:
"I was just going to bed on the night of Monday, November 3rd 1941 when I had the inspiration. I was living in digs in a Hertfordshire village, my coal fire had gone out, and I was already in my pyjamas: nevertheless, I sat down at my typewriter and wrote to Leslie Perowne, who was in charge of the lighter kinds of record programmes".
That Hertfordshire village was Bushey, and his "digs" was a small cottage in Little Bushey Lane. Read his letter to the BBC, and their reply, and see who else from Bushey has been Cast Away.
