Description

When Brian Johnston was a schoolboy, his reports were full of phrases such as "talks too much in school" and "apt to be a buffoon". Later millions would be delighted to discover that some things never changed. Following on from "A Delicious Slice of Johnners" and "Another Slice of Johnners", Barry Johnston has edited a third anthology based on three of his father's most popular books, "It's Been A Lot of Fun", "Brian Johnston's Down Your Way" and "More Views From the Boundary". This volume covers Brian's early days, from his childhood in Hertfordshire, his schooldays at Eton and Oxford, his job in the family coffee business in the City and his service with the Grenadier Guards during World War II. There is also a selection of the most memorable characters and locations from his 15 years on Radio 4's "Down Your Way", plus a collection of his popular "View From the Boundary" interviews on "Test Match Special".

Author Biography

Brian Johnston was one of the best-loved figures on radio and television and will always be remembered as 'the voice of cricket'. He joined the Outside Broadcasts Department of the BBC in 1946 and was a cricket commentator for the next 48 years, most notably as a member of the Test Match Special team. He commentated on state occasions and royal weddings and events such as the Boat Race and he also presented 733 episodes of Down Your Way. He died in 1994 at the age of 81. Barry Johnston is Brian's eldest son and has edited several of his father's books including Letters Home 1926 -- 1945, A Delicious Slice of Johnners and Another Slice of Johnners.
