Description

For thirty-two years, John Humphrys has presented Radio 4's Today, Britain's most popular news programme. Now the veteran broadcaster writes his memoirs to mark his retirement from the BBC. Famed for his tough interviewing, his deep suspicion of authority in all its forms, his passionate commitment to various causes and his ferocious intellect, his book will chart the course of John's life from his Cardiff childhood through the ups and downs of his life as a journalist covering Watergate and apartheid South Africa, his time presenting BBC 9'O Clock News and his thirty-two years holding politicians to account on Radio 4's Today - the nation's most popular news programme. The book will offer a behind-the-scenes account of working on the Today Programme with his insights and stories about major politicians, figures in the news, celebrities, the BBC, as well as his trenchant view on the role of the media in politics and the health of the political system. It gives an unmissable view of some of the great events of the last sixty years from his unique perspective.
