I was asked to cover this programme for BBC Radio Oxford, interviewing celebrated children’s author Teresa Heapy about the guests she would choose for her own dream dinner party.

As her guests, Teresa chose muppets impresario Jim Henson, inspirational author and illustrator Judith Kerr of ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’, presenter and activist Esther Rantzen and award-winning choreographer Sir Matthew Bourne.

We had a lot of fun talking through why these people inspired Teresa so much, while imagining what might actually be said – and what kind of soundtrack would be appropriate too.
