Description

What is it like to live the life of Sir Terry Wogan KBE? WOGAN'S TWELVE puts you in the passenger seat as Terry journeys through a helter-skelter year. From radio to TV studio, from hosting a charity event to experiencing the thrills of a Eurovision Song Contest, to sitting in the garden of his French chateau waiting for the rain to stop, there's no denying that Terry Wogan does more in one year than most people do in a lifetime. With diary entries and specially commissioned Matt cartoons through the months, this is a wonderfully witty, off-the-wall account of the year's highlights, the lunacies of the modern world, and of course the Eurovision Song Contest. It's a perceptive insight, warm with Terry's distinctive voice, and a must-have for his millions of fans.show more

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.show more
