And Why Not?: As I Never Did Say (Hardback)Barry Norman (author)
Hardback Published: 02/09/2002
- Not available
One of our best-known journalists and broadcasters, renowned for his laconic wit and opinionated ideas, now looks back at his fascinating life. Barry Norman fronted the seminal BBC film programme since FILM 72 and many mourned the moment he decided to leave. For nearly 30 years he established himself as the authority on film and has become the funniest, most iconoclastic and astute reviewer we know. During that time he met and fraternised with the cinematic greats - stars, directors and producers - and he now tells all in an honest, clever and humorous insider's look at the world of journalism, broadcasting and film. Barry's autobiography promises offbeat encounters with the likes of Sir David English, Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, Laurence Olivier, Peter Sellers, Madonna, Robert De Niro and many more. With both his parents working in the world of film, Barry Norman was no stranger to the starry circles. From his childhood and early days as a journalist to his retirement from the BBC, and with thirty years of the most fabulous anecdotes to be told both from the worlds of journalism and cinema, this is a witty and intelligently written story of a fascinating life.
