Reith Of The BBC

Full Product Description

Drama was at the heart of the volcanic life of Lord Reith. Through the eyes of his daughter we see, for the first time, into the personal story of a man who made a legendary contribution to British culture.

His immense gifts of oratory and organisation – and his great reserves of energy – stamped their mark on the fledgling BBC.

From an office little bigger than a broom cupboard, an institution was formed whose standards to this day command the respect of the world. Reith’s compelling story also includes a perilous wartime journey across the Atlantic, a stormy relationship with Churchill, the abdication of a king and much more besides.

“One of the most fascinating books I’ve read in a very long time…Reith emerges as one of the most extraordinary figures of the twentieth century.” Stephen Fry

“A sensational book.” Andrew Mar, Sunday AM BBC1

“A fascinating insight into the character and personality of the first Director General and the mad, early days of the BBC. She manages to inform, educate and entertain.” Jenni Murray

Reith Of The BBC by Marista Lesihman was published by St Andrew Press in September 2008. The ISBN for Reith Of The BBC is 9780715208571.
