Evening with Johnners

Centenary Edition

"What really sticks out his innate decency as a person. As Johnston points out, it is some feat never to have had an argument with all the disparate members of the Test Match Special box over the years, including the spiky late Fred Trueman. He changed the whole approach to cricket commentary on TMS, puncturing some of the pomposity that surrounded the game. In some ways this culminated in the most painfully funny bit of schoolboy japery with Jonathan Agnew when Ian Botham couldn't get his "leg over" the stumps at The Oval in 1991." Cricket365. 'If you're having a down day, don't reach for the pills or the whiskey, look no further than 'An Evening with Johnners' - full of wit, warmth and his legendary anecdotes... a must for cricket lovers.' Countryside. 'Every page is filled with hilarious memories, comical stories and anecdotes.' Lincolnshire Life.

The tour was a sell-out and a recording of one of the shows became a number one bestseller and was awarded a Gold Disc. When Brian Johnston died in 1994, he was described by the Daily Telegraph as 'the greatest natural broadcaster of them all'. Les mer

The tour was a sell-out and a recording of one of the shows became a number one bestseller and was awarded a Gold Disc. When Brian Johnston died in 1994, he was described by the Daily Telegraph as 'the greatest natural broadcaster of them all'. This book was first published in 1996 and contains all the material from the original recording as well as additional stories from his second and final tour. Brian's skill and warmth as a master raconteur shine through on every page as he recalls his early years at Eton and Oxford, his war service with the Grenadier Guards, and his remarkable broadcasting career at the BBC. There are hundreds of hilarious memories, stories and anecdotes, all told in his inimitable, friendly style and he describes the famous 'leg-over' incident. This centenary edition has been updated by the editor, Brian's eldest son Barry Johnston, and includes new illustrations by John Ireland.
