On the 20th anniversary of Roald Dahl's death, David Tennant tells a new tale of the unexpected the stamp he has left on the world of pop.

Kate Nash reveals how Dahl's fantastical children's books have influenced her own storytelling style, stirring her to invent surreal characters and magical places in songs like Mariella and Little Red.

Kelly Jones of the Stereophonics explains how he found inspiration for songs, such as I Stopped To Fill My Car Up, in Dahl's grisly, suspenseful short stories.

Plus, David reveals how a song about Willy Wonka The Candy Man gave Rat Pack legend Sammy Davis Jr his only US No. 1.
