DAY LIKE TODAY, A

Synopsis

For more than three decades, millions of Britons have woken to the sound of John Humphrys’s voice. As presenter of Radio 4’s Today, the nation’s most popular news programme, he is famed for his tough interviewing, his deep misgivings about authority in its many forms, and his passionate commitment to a variety of causes. Here, John charts his journey from the poverty of his post-war childhood in Cardiff, leaving school at 15, to the summits of broadcasting.
