Pollyanne

Author:

Sarah Oliver

Synopsis:

John McLaren has dedicated his life to rescuing mistreated donkeys. When he finds Pollyanne at a livestock auction - unloved and horribly frail - he knows that if he doesn't take her home to the sanctuary, she stands little chance of surviving. Despite her terrible start in life, Pollyanne has the X factor and is destined for more than the local nativity play. The bright lights of the West End beckon and before long, Pollyanne is appearing onstage with opera's biggest stars. Sarah Oliver's POLLYANNE is a heart-warming true story of unconditional love - and a Little Donkey with star quality.

Reading Allowed

Author:

Chris Paling

Synopsis:

When novelist Chris Paling went for a job at his local library, he anticipated a quiet life - but soon discovered that the reality was somewhat different. He found that at times the library is an extension of A&E, while at other times it's a hostel for the homeless; a psychiatric ward; a crime scene; a study hall; a place of safety; a boxing ring; a confessional booth; a theatre space; a venue for knitting and book groups; and an information hub for people trying to find a long-lost relative or a job. From street sleepers like Brewer who use the 'fiction' stacks as their living room, to the lonely who drift in for their only conversation of the day, READING ALLOWED shows that libraries are full of stories - not all of them in books.

Everywoman

Author:

Jess Phillips

Synopsis:

If you're thinking, "Jess, who?" then I'm glad that there was something about "Everywoman" and "truth" that caught your eye. Or you might know me as that gobby MP who has a tendency to shout about stuff I care about. I have been called a feminazi witch and a murderer, and been threatened with rape. So, speaking the truth isn't always easy, but I believe it's worth it. And I want you to believe it too. The truth can be empowering, the truth can lead to greater equality, and the world would be incredibly boring if we let all of those people who allegedly know everything, say everything. By demanding to be heard, by being doers not sayers, and by daring to believe that we can make a difference - we can.

And On That Bombshell

Author:

Richard Porter

Synopsis:

For 13 years, 22 series and 175 shows, Richard Porter was script editor of TOP GEAR, from the first faltering pilot episode in 2002 until the very last show presented by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May in 2015. Along the way, they destroyed cars, sparked diplomatic incidents, set fire to caravans, almost killed one of the presenters, and somehow transformed TOP GEAR from a shabby BBC Two motoring show into an Emmy-winning, record-breaking, planet-straddling behemoth. From driving monkeys to flying cars, Richard Porter provides a unique insight into how the programmes were made, revealing behind-the-scenes disasters more comical than anything seen on screen, and explaining what it was really like to work inside the self-professed 'poky motoring show' that accidentally became a global phenomenon.
