Johnners at the Beeb (selections of Brian Johnston at microphone 2 x tapes)

£3.99

Product description

Jovial Johnners - doyen of cricket commentators, consumer of chocolate cake, "In Town Tonight" reporter, presenter of "Down Your Way", genial quizmaster and a much-loved voice at State occasions.

For nearly 50 years the ever-affable, always enthusiastic Brian Johnston brought warmth and wit to a wide range of BBC programmes - commentating for "Test Match Special" or the Oxford vs Cambridge University Boat Race, reporting for "In Town Tonight" or presenting "Down Your Way", playing games on "Twenty Questions" or "Trivia Test Match", and describing Royal events, like the Coronation of Elizabeth II, and the marriage of the Prince and Princess of Wales.

Here, selected and introduced by his son Barry, is the best of "Johnners at the Beeb", a marvellous kaleidoscope of the man at the microphone including, of course, the gaffes and the giggles.

It all adds up to an unforgettable portrait of an inimitable raconteur.
