Sophie Dahl looks at the life, writing and passions of her grandfather, the children's author Roald Dahl.

By turns acerbic, funny, inventive and clever, what made him the writer he became? Sophie guides us through Dahl's Norwegian background but very British education, his early life in Washington and Hollywood and marriage to film star Patricia Neal.

Then the personal tragedies and life at home in Buckinghamshire, looking after his children and writing the stories which would make him one of the most famous authors of the 20th century.

We hear about the many lives of Roald Dahl through the voices of himself, his family and those who knew him throughout his 74 years.

I enjoyed this a lot - even though it made me realise I've been pronouncing his name wrong all my life!
