Writing the Oxford Castaways series for 10 years I had the privilege of interviewing  120 incredible people  and often becoming friends with them afterwards.( I should have said 119 – because I was the final castaway interviewed by Philip Hind)  The late great Roger Bannister  was an enthusiatic supporter of both me and the series.  He came from a modest background but not as modest as Icolyn. She is the daughter of subsistence farmers in Jamaica. You will see from this heart -warming  TV programme that Icolyn radiates love. If you want to read her story click on the PDF.
