Singer and song writer Neil Tennant in conversation with Philip Dodd. He discusses the influence of the North East on his career which began in publishing and magazines, the road to London which proved irresistable, and about life with musical partner Chris Lowe in Pet Shop Boys. The biggest selling British pop duo of all time with more than fifty million albums sold worldwide, last year Pet Shop Boys performed at the closing ceremony of the London Olympics and they have just returned from a tour which has taken them to 29 countries.
