Desperately Seeking Wisdom
Monday, 31 January
The BBC Today programme presenter, Justin Webb, is known for mixing forensic journalistic skills with being a true gentleman.
But he had a difficult childhood, brought up by a complex mother with lots of issues and a step-father with a severe mental illness.
When he was eight, his mother told him the presenter he was watching on the news was his father Peter Woods, a man he would never meet.
He talks openly about all of this in his fascinating new memoir, “The Gift of Radio, My Childhood and other Trainwrecks.”
