Peter Sissons is one of the most recognisable faces of British television. From one newsroom to the next he has relayed the details of every momentous event of the last forty-five years. A Liverpool boy, rubbing shoulders with John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison at school, Sissons became the most trusted face of objective news. When One Door Closes is the surprisingly funny, dramatic and often poignant story of Britain's most distinguished newsreader. An Iranian Fatwa hanging over him, shot through both legs during the Nigerian Civil War and hitting the headlines himself when poached by the BBC, Sissons has some fascinating stories to tell. He has sparked debate and controversy - not least thanks to a media maelstrom over his choice of tie while announcing the death of the Queen Mother. Now retired from broadcasting, he can finally lift the lid on his thoughts about the state of the British media, global affairs and what he really thinks of the BBC. Peter Sissons anchored Channel 4 news for its first seven years, and has presented BBC programmes from Question Time to the Ten O'Clock News.
