in Pitlochry – The man who brought us A History of the World in 100 Objects and then this year has delighted Radio 4 audiences with The New Elizabethans, a series of documentary profiles which celebrates the sixty New Elizabethans, from all walks of life in British society. A fascinating guide to the history of Great Britain as well as a continuation of the celebration of the Queen's 60 year reign, James's comments: “I was born just before the Queen’s accession, so this history is mine too. The New Elizabethans have built the country that I live in, given it colour and life and, in part, made us all the people that we are.”
Come and hear Eleanor read from her work, talk about her career as a prize-winning novelist and her character Montmorency who features in several of her books, a small time crook whose life is transformed after an accident nearly kills him.
