Jonathan Agnew (2011 event)

In 1991, cricket commentator Agnew was involved in a slice of broadcasting history with an innuendo-fuelled remark about Ian Botham. His throwaway line during a Test Match Special had his radio colleague Brian Johnston dissolving into an unstoppable fit of giggles. Thanks, Johnners is Agnew’s affectionate tribute to his old buddy who died suddenly in 1994; it also includes tales of batting and bowling legends Trueman, Boycott, Richards and Botham. In this event, recorded live at the 2011 Edinburgh International Book Festival, Agnew talks to Al Senter.
