I am a long term fan of Michael Powell and The Archers and was horrified when I read this book.
I've never seen a book so full of inaccuracies.
I wrote to the publishers listing about 30 or so of the most glaring factual errors. They wrote back saying that my comments had been noted but didn't say they intended to correct any of them.
