The tour was a sell-out and a recording of one of the shows became a number one bestseller and was awarded a Gold Disc. When Brian died in 1994, he was described by the Daily Telegraph as 'the greatest natural broadcaster of them all'. This book was first published in 1996 and contains all the material from the original recording as well as additional stories from his second and final tour. Brian's skill and warmth as a master raconteur shine through on every page as he recalls his early years at Eton and Oxford, his war service with the Grenadier Guards, and his remarkable broadcasting career at the BBC. There are hundreds of hilarious memories, stories and anecdotes, all told in his inimitable, friendly style and he describes the famous 'leg-over' incident. This centenary edition has been updated by the editor, Brian's eldest son Barry Johnston, and includes new illustrations by John Ireland.
