In this third and final anthology in the popular Slice of Johnners series, Barry Johnston has edited highlights from three more of his father’s books, It’s Been A Lot of Fun, Brian Johnston’s Down Your Way and More Views From The Boundary.
This anthology covers Brian’s early days, from his childhood in Hertfordshire, his school days at Eton and Oxford, his job in the family coffee business in the City and his service with the Grenadier Guards during World War Two.
There is also a selection of the most memorable characters and locations from his fifteen years on the Radio Four programme Down Your Way. Finally there is a collection of Brians ‘View From The Boundary’ interviews on Test Match Special, including conversations with Eric Idle, John Major and Peter O’Toole.
