Book Description

14 July 2006
A charming work dedicated to the memory of 'Our Fred' from
Paul Donoghue, who filmed Fred for many years. With many untold stories
inside and the whole being presented in a very warm and intimate style, the
reader feels as though he or she is really sharing the experiences, along
with Sheila Dibnah, TV producer David Hall and friends like Neil Carney and
Alf Molyneaux. There is laughter - and moments of resounding, intimate
sadness. Sheila describes 'the worst day of our lives' - the day Fred was
told his cancer had returned. 'What are you going to do?' said Sheila. 'I'm
going to finish me engine off, cock,' he firmly replied. The whole book is
interspersed with lovely illustrations and includes a bonus audio CD that
records some of Fred's stories from his sell-out live one-man shows.

5.0 out of 5 stars fred dibnah 17 Jun 2007
This book was bought for my husband for his 70th birthday. We have both read it & listened to the cd. In turn we were in tears of laughter & sorrow. The book is an absolute gem, & the cd hilarious beyond belief. What a loss to the world Fred`s death was.
