Philip's taste in music is, by his own admission, broad; he'll give anything a go. This week, he sat down with Vernon Kay to talk about his favourite records on the BBC Radio 2 show 'Tracks of my Years'. From The Beatles to Harry Styles, Philip takes us on a journey through his life and work, picking the songs that evoke memories and mark special occasions (or, that his teenage daughter told him he had to choose! LOL).
Philip appeared on BBC Radio 2's Steve Wright in the Afternoon today, with guest host Ore Oduba to promote his new audio production of Treasure Island.
.As well as promoting Treasure Island, Philip also discussed the advantages of audio/voiceover work, the difficulties of keeping children entertained during the summer holidays and his work on Sky One's Living the Dream, which he said he thinks will hit screens in November. You can listen to the full interview below.
Treasure Island is available for download from Audible (through Amazon) .

After months of searching we are delighted to be able to bring you two very rare Philip Glenister radio plays.
The Sea (originally broadcast in 1996) is an Edward Bond play set in East Anglia in 1907.
