Day Like Today, A: Memoirs [9780007415571]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

For thirty-three 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 Nine O'Clock News and his thirty-three 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.

AUTHOR:  John Humphrys is an award-winning journalist who has presented the Today programme since January 1987 - almost twice as long as any other presenter. In his 50 years at the BBC he was also their youngest television foreign correspondent and served in Washington during the Watergate years and southern Africa during apartheid and the Rhodesian war. He presented the Nine o'Clock news on BBC1 for six years and has also presented Panorama and On the Ropes on Radio 4. He has chaired Mastermind since 2003. He's written eight books, including two on the English language and others on the dangers of intensive agriculture and the case for physician assisted suicide.
