Description

From his first day in journalism nearly fifty years ago, when he put the wrong caption on a picture of Deanna Durbin, Mike Randall's career has been one of ups and downs. In 1965 he was named Journalist of the Year and congruently the "Daily Mail" which he edited was named Newspaper of the Year. Randall discusses the curious dynamics of policies and personalities that have boosted and undermined circulation figures over the years, of newspapers such as the "Daily Mirror" and "Sunday Times" and newspapers now laid to rest like the "Daily Sketch" and the "Sunday Graphic". He writes about the people he met such as Wilson, Macmillan and Harold Evans, about the pitfalls of weekending with Viscount Rothermere and about lunching with the Queen at Buckingham Palace.show more
