Headlines and Hedgerows: A Memoir

Headlines and Hedgerows: A Memoir

John Craven  (Author)
'Magical memoirs. A BBC legend. A broadcasting icon. The best bits from cub reporter to Countryfile' Mail on Sunday

He began by reading the front page of the evening newspaper in the kitchen to his mother and aunt. Since then he's spoken into microphones to the nation on the BBC almost every week for more than half a century and is one of the most-beloved broadcasters of our time.

Presenter of treasured programmes Newsround, Countryfile and Swap Shop, John brought us the headlines and breaking news of our childhood and later helped us discover the magic and wonder of the British countryside.

Now, in his first ever autobiography, he recounts a life in news, his childhood, the great impact that his father's disappearance had on his life; held prisoner for three and a half years while fighting for his country. He writes too about the people, the major events - and of course, the animals - that have shaped his life.

This is John Craven. And this is the story behind the man so many of us grew up watching on our television screens.
