In 1993 Brian Johnston embarked on a nationwide tour of his one man show An Evening with Johnners. 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.
This book was first published in 1996 and contains all the material from the original recording as well as additional stories from Brian’s final tour before he died in January 1994. 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, and he also describes the famous ‘leg-over’ incident.
This special centenary edition has been updated by the editor, Brian’s eldest son Barry Johnston, and includes new illustrations by John Ireland.
