YORKSHIRE BOYHOOD, A

Synopsis

All the pleasures and pangs of northern working-class childhood are magnificently evoked as Roy Hattersley takes us through the hardships of the Thirties and the Blitz; and into the 1940s remembering the 11-plus examination and Grammar School. He recounts a ten-year feud with the next-door neighbours and tells us of his unwavering devotion to Sheffield Wednesday.
