David Attenborough is one of the most influential and admired figures in English television. When 26, he applied for a job in the BBC - which then meant radio - and was promptly turned down. But someone saw his rejected application and asked, would he like to try television? He would, and sixty years later, he is still at it. Elegantly told, often very funny, here is his story. At home there is his rise to controlling BBC2, introducing colour television to Britain, encounters with Montgomery, Anthony Eden, singers, athletes, explorers, the Queen, Benjamin Britten. Abroad there are people just as remarkable, journeys up tropical rivers, to the interior of New Guinea or the Australian outback, dragons, birds of paradise, flying snakes and walls of cockroaches. Now updated to cover his work since 2009, Life on Air is a remarkable account of David Attenborough's passion for the natural world and his lifelong quest to understand it. .

This book is not just about air travel. It is about the emergent social world of flying. It concerns air space and behavior in the air the way someone else might look at cities and street behavior. Economic, political, and cultural aspects are all considered. . . . Airports have now become specific places in their own right that, in a certain sense, now. . . are very much like cities. Frequent flying also has produced its very own culture. Rules of behavior are subscribed to in the air. Unique behaviors at terminals and in the passenger cabin have emerged that contrast with life on the ground. In chapters below I explore these interesting aspects of etiquette, eroticism, and bi-coastalism, a human activity that is only possible because of our present society's evolution. . . . Only now have we begun to appreciate our emergent global culture. The world is shrinking just as the opportunities for travel expand. -from the Introduction

As a kid growing up in Queens, Mike Feder identified with Scheherazade of The Thousand and One Nights: "The idea of someone having to tell a new tale every night to prevent their head getting chopped off seemed sadly familiar to me." Back then, the author's audience was his mentally ill mother, who used to stay in the house all day with the shades drawn, and then insist that her son tell her stories so that she might vicariously experience the world outside. Eventually she committed suicide, and Feder grew up to be a relentless, comic storyteller on the radio. The Talking Cure tells the story of his ridiculous jobs, first failed marriage, the string of psychiatrists, and the misery of reluctant fatherhood; throughout he maintains a kind of bizarre balancing act--hilariousness and deep seriousness, conventionality and strangeness. An ironist and a comic, Feder looks unflinchingly at his own foibles and frailties, enabling him to connect to other people's stories. The reader emerges from this book with a sense of forgiveness for the human condition, and awe at the mystery of human life. Deeply funny, and at the same time breathtakingly dark, this is a book to provoke, amuse and, in some strange way, reassure: God loves a challenge.

In Radio Ingleside; A Life On Air, John Harding traces his journey from a small southern town on the North Carolina border to the excitement of big time network news and a 33 year career with Virginia's largest and most influential radio station. The book opens with John's vivid imagination running away with him in his backyard in Emporia, Virginia. Soon, his fantasy centers on radio where reality comes on a pirate station in his basement. The young owner of the local station hears him and at the age of 14, a career path slowly emerges as John struggles to find his own identity in a very creative family. His mother was a poet and designer; his father was an accomplished woodworker and carver; sister Barbara was a successful artist and sister June was a Broadway, Television and Movie star. Finding his way, John wrecks the family car shortly after getting his license and flunks the 10th grade. Undaunted, his mother is determined he will go to college. Ultimately, John lands at WRVA in Richmond where he becomes a respected and honored newsman and secretly, the creator and voice of a fantasy character named "Millard The Mallard." With Foreword by Richmond Radio legend Lou Dean and back cover blurb by longtime radio personality Tim Timberlake, Radio Ingleside is a love story about radio and sadly, its undoing. "Radio Ingleside; A Life On Air" is an expanded version of the Kindle edition.

For more than twenty years, Bishop Tom Butler has related religious belief to the events of public life, both national and global, in regular contributions to BBC Radio 4's Thought for the Day. Each 'Thought' is prompted by current events, without knowing how the news will develop, thereby illustrating how religion relates to contemporary life and how the insights it offers may develop over time. Here, Tom Butler explores themes ranging from The Gulf Wars and Terrorism via Science, Medical Ethics and Political Life to Religion itself. Drawing on (and incorporating) a selection of Thought for the Day scripts covering a twenty-year period, he charts the developing relationship between religion and public life and explores the Church's role of bringing religious values and insights to bear on topical issues and restating the public's hopes and fears in religious language.
