Justin Webb: Radio Saved My Life

Respected presenter of BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, Justin Webb sheds revealing new light on his dysfunctional childhood. His moving, candid and humane memoir, The Gift of a Radio, paints a fascinating picture of the 70s Britain that shaped him. Today, Webb discusses his youth against a backdrop of strikes, inflation and a grim Quaker boarding school.
