Wogan's Twelve : A Sharp Eye and a Witty Word to Mark the Passing Year
Sir Terry Wogan is one of the most popular entertainers in Britain today. But what must it be like to live the life of Sir Terry Wogan. From radio to TV studio, from host at a charity event to experiencing the thrills of a Eurovision Song Contest, from presenting awards to receiving awards, from standing naked at his kitchen sink eating a quick mango for breakfast before waking up the nation to sitting in the garden of his beautiful chateau in France with a delicious glass of Bordeaux and huge pile of novels by his side. There is no denying the fact that Sir Terry Wogan does more in one year than most people do in a lifetime. WOGAN'S YEAR puts you in the passenger seat with Sir Terry as he journeys through another helter-skelter year. With diary entries and photographs of the months and seasons, this is a wonderfully witty, off-the-wall account of his experiences, from the fans and celebrities he meets to the places he visits, from the highlights of his radio show to the lunacies of our modern world. Perceptive and insightful, and with Sir Terry's distinctive warm and wise narrative, this book is a must-have for his millions of fans.

About Sir Terry Wogan
Terry Wogan was born in Limerick and educated at Crescent College. After leaving college Terry went into banking, if only he'd stuck to it he'd be retired now(!), and five years later joined Radio Telefis Eirann as a newsreader/announcer. Moving to light entertainment as a disc jockey and host of TV quiz and variety shows, in 1969 Terry stood in for BBC Radio's Jimmy Young and later that year was given his own daily shows on BBC Radio 1 and 2. In 1972 he took over the prestigious morning show slot and it's been downhill since then. Terry's extensive television credits include his live chat show series WOGAN, SONGS FOR EUROPE, THE EUROVISION SONG CONTEST, COME DANCING and BLANKETY BLANK, to name but a few. In 1993 Terry rejoined BBC Radio 2 to present WAKE UP TO WOGAN the most listened to breakfast show in the UK. In a moment of weakness Her Majesty the Queen honoured him with a knighthood in 2005. He is married to the sainted Lady Helen, the present Mrs Wogan, and has two sons and a daughter. Terry Wogan was born in Limerick and educated at Crescent College.
