You're Booked

By Daisy Buchanan

12. Charlie Connelly

This week we're travelling to sunny Deal on the Kent coast to peruse the shelving of author, travel writer, sports scribe and broadcaster Charlie Connelly. Charlie has written books on a baffling array of subjects including Elvis, walking, weather and World War I. He is perhaps best known for his glorious book about the Shipping Forecast, Attention All Shipping and he has just released a wonderful book about the magic of radio listening, Last Train To Hilversum. We talked to Charlie about cricket, gothic plagiarists, fighting Ben Fogle and loving Margaret Rutherford.
