From a modest start on a country weekly in the Yorkshire Dales Colin Dunne staggered, via Leeds and Halifax, London, Leamington Spa, Newcastle upon Tyne and Manchester to Fleet Street in its heyday. For the best part of half a century he delighted readers of local, regional and national newspapers and magazines with his canny ability to spot - and more importantly to report - the strange, the odd, the unlikely and the just plain daft elements of human life. Whether interviewing film star Brigitte Bardot, poet Basil Bunting, or even Corky the Talking Dog... discovering the nightlife of Hamburg, the ice maidens of Reykjavik, sharing life on a beach with the models for a Pirelli calendar, or watching Antiques Roadshow being filmed in Jamaica, Colin Dunne was the man for any assignment that was identifiably barmy. And always back in the office were the reckless and the feckless, outrageous, disgraceful, immoral, completely unreliable, but also the richly talented, wildly inventive and, above all, endlessly amusing. An incredible account of the Great Days, the Glory Days, of journalism. And if you don't believe it, ask Corky.
