One of our most treasured BBC broadcasters, a lover of literature, host of BBC Radio 4’s Book Club, and chair for the Man Booker Prize jury, James Naughtie chooses six books that have influenced him and inspired him through his life, in conversation with Paul Atterbury.
James Naughtie will also discuss his latest novel: The Spy Across The Water following Will Flemyng on a dangerous journey into his clandestine past, from conflict in Ireland to the long shadows of the Cold War, in an electric story of courage and betrayal.
James Naughtie was a popular presenter of Radio 4’s flagship Today programme. He is also a noted authority on classical music and opera. He fronted coverage of The Proms for more than a decade, and published The Making of Music – putting 1,000 years of composers and their works into proper historical context. His own publications include The Rivals, which exposed the truth about the relationship between Tony Blair and Gordon Brown, and his first novel, The Madness of July.
James Naughtie will be in conversation with Paul Atterbury.
