Satirist, radio presenter and theatre director Ned Sherrin, looks back on his life and career with inimitable wit and a good deal of wisdom. Ned Sherrin was born into a farming family in Somerset in 1931 and became involved in the theatre whilst reading law at Oxford University. Since then he has worked extensively in broadcasting, theatre and film, as an actor, producer, director, author and presenter. In the early 1960s he produced the first satirical television magazine show That Was The Week That Was, and has been ruffling Establishment feathers ever since. He now presents Loose Ends on Radio 4, along with the music quiz series Counterpoint which has been running since 1987. Of the latter he says: It's the most entertaining revision course in popular and classical music that I could imagine."
This special evening coincides with the paperback publication of Ned's Autobiography.
