How Not To Be A Boy

Author:

Robert Webb

Synopsis:

Don't cry; love sport; play rough; drink beer; don't talk about feelings. But Robert Webb has been wondering for some time now: are those rules actually any use? To anyone? Looking back over his life, from schoolboy crushes (on girls and boys) to discovering the power of making people laugh (in the Cambridge Footlights with David Mitchell and Olivia Colman), and from losing his beloved mother to becoming a husband and father, Robert considers the absurd expectations boys and men have thrust upon them at every stage of his life. HOW NOT TO BE A BOY explores the relationships that made Robert who he is as a man, the lessons we learn as sons and daughters, and the understanding that sometimes you aren't the Luke Skywalker of your life - you're actually Darth Vader.

Shepherd Of Another Flock

Author:

David Wilbourne

Synopsis:

As the newly appointed vicar of Helmsley, David is looking forward to working in this picturesque market town in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside. Admittedly, the vicarage - which dates back to the twelfth century - is extremely cold and damp. And not all of his parishioners are impressed by his new-fangled ways. But with the help of the irrepressible Father Bert, a retired cleric and one-time tail-end Charlie, David sets about winning over the townsfolk. There's Lord Feversham, the local landowner who at times bears an unnerving resemblance to Henry VIII; fiery Ted, a retired chef who fought with the Polish Free Army; Frank, the singing shepherd, still working as he approaches eighty; and redoubtable countrywoman Eva, a font of wisdom - and all have stories of hardship and sacrifice, friendship and love.

A Boy's Own Dale

Author:

Terry Wilson

Synopsis:

Growing up in rural Yorkshire in the 1950s, Terry Wilson spent his school days hunting down Just William books, cutting up apples to help with fractions and staring out the window dreaming up schemes. But it was on the Dales themselves that Terry came into his own. Whether he was 'out-fishing' the adults with his homemade rod, grouse-beating for the lady of the manor or growing his own prize caulis, his idiosyncratic and inventive mind was matched only by his love of nature. Told with affection, dry humour and a respect for the landscape and its people, A Boy's Own Dale is a charming tale of a long-lost world.

Young Winstone

Author:

Ray Winstone/Ben Thompson

Synopsis:

Ray Winstone's amazing talent for bringing out the humanity buried inside his often brutal screen characters - violent offender in SCUM, wife-beater in NIL BY MOUTH, retired blagger in SEXY BEAST - has made him one of the most charismatic actors of his generation. But how do these uncompromising and often haunting performances square with his off-duty reputation as the ultimate salt-of-the-earth diamond geezer? The answer lies in the East End of his youth: the home of gangsters, bank robbers, Bobby Moore, and family and friends who looked out for each other...

The Life And Rhymes Of Benjamin Zephaniah

Author:

Benjamin Zephaniah

Synopsis:

A pioneer of performance poetry, Benjamin Zephaniah's talents as a lyricist and storyteller emerged at a young age, helping him to survive the racism he faced growing up in 1960s Birmingham. He now speaks candidly of his time living outside the law, and how he broke away from the path his schoolteachers told him was inevitable. With the flame of creativity burning inside him, Benjamin came to London in the 1980s and emerged as a uniquely dynamic performer. Nelson Mandela formed a close friendship with him after hearing his musical tribute to him recorded with the Wailers - the first artist to do so after the death of Bob Marley. Benjamin's memories provide a vivid portrait of an extraordinary life that celebrates the power of poetry and the importance of pushing boundaries.
