Auntie and Uncles: The Bizarre Birth of the BBC
My new book is out soon! Just not soon enough. Join my Mailing List for latest info, and be first to hear when it's out + get sample chapters.
It's NOT pre-orderable - as I don't quite know its release date yet. Stay tuned to this frequency! Finished by Christmas. (Although they said that about the First World War...)
The historical research has been vast - but trust me, it'll be worth it. I keeping finding glorious untold tales at every turn. The first London broadcast! The first woman of radio! The feud that launched the British broadcasting industry! Most days I'm either writing this or knee-deep in the archives researching for it.
This will be book one of a trilogy on the early years of the BBC - this novel bringing us from World War I up to the birth of the Beeb. Book 2 will cover the Company years (1922-26) then book 3 will cover the Corporation at Savoy Hill (1927-32). We'll see if we get to the Broadcasting House years!
I'm self-publishing so I'm learning as I go. It's a cracking tale! Can't wait for you to read it.
