The Road to Little Dribbling: More Notes From a Small Island Audiobook

The Road to Little Dribbling: More Notes From a Small Island

Author: Bill Bryson Narrator: Nathan Osgood Release Date: October 2015

Twenty years ago, Bill Bryson went on a trip around Britain to celebrate the green and kindly island that had become his adopted country. The hilarious book that resulted, Notes from a Small Island, was taken to the nation's heart and became the best-selling travel book ever, and was also voted in a BBC poll the book that best represents Britain. Now, to mark the twentieth anniversary of that modern classic, Bryson makes a brand-new journey around Britain to see what has changed. Following (but not too closely) a route he dubs the Bryson Line, from Bognor Regis to Cape Wrath, by way of places that many people never get to at all, Bryson sets out to rediscover the wondrously beautiful, magnificently eccentric, endearingly unique country that he thought he knew but doesn't altogether recognize any more. Yet, despite Britain's occasional failings and more or less eternal bewilderments, Bill Bryson is still pleased to call our rainy island home. And not just because of the cream teas, a noble history, and an extra day off at Christmas. Once again, with his matchless homing instinct for the funniest and quirkiest, his unerring eye for the idiotic, the endearing, the ridiculous and the scandalous, Bryson gives us an acute and perceptive insight into all that is best and worst about Britain today. Download includes accompanying PDF map of the Bryson Line Music written and performed by Richard Digance, inspired by The Road to Little Dribbling

With his matchless instinct for the funniest and quirkiest and his unerring eye for the idiotic, the bewildering, the appealing, and the ridiculous, he offers acute and perceptive insights into all that is best and worst about Britain today.Nothing is more entertaining than Bill Bryson on the road and on a tear. The Road to Little Dribbling reaffirms his stature as a master of the travel narrative and a really, really funny guy.From the Hardcover edition.

Six BBC radio dramas following the political swings of the Republican Party, through the personal stories of its Presidents Focussing on three of the best-known Republican Presidents of the 20th Century, Jonathan Myerson's riveting drama series looks at how their triumphs and disasters drove the party's electoral fortunes.Closely based on accounts by those who were there, this political trilogy reimagines the pivotal moments that changed history, and the part played by these famous and controversial leaders. Ronald Reagan: Death Valley Days 1965. Barry Goldwater's presidential campaign against LBJ has crashed and burned, and the Republicans need a fresh, new face -someone with TV appeal.

Richard Nixon: Searchlight Has Left the Building 1970. President Nixon has invaded Cambodia, sparking student protests across the US. At Kent State University, the National Guardsmen have shot four dead, and Washington is on high alert.

As the Secret Service struggles to catch up, the night takes a bizarre turn... Gerald Ford: Fascist Insect 1975. Nixon has resigned, and new President Gerald Ford is fighting for his political survival. The country is in chaos, his party is disintegrating, and challenger Ronald Reagan is attacking with weekly radio broadcasts and the catchy slogan 'Make America Great Again'. Saigon has fallen, the Panama Canal is under threat and political fervour is everywhere - even celebrity rich-girl kidnap victim Patty Hearst seems to have turned terrorist. Then ex-FBI informant Sara Jane Moore decides to trigger the revolution. She buys a gun - and aims it at the President... Ronald Reagan: Hanging by Our Thumbs 1987. Hold on tight for a knockabout journey through the crazy stories of the notorious Iran-Contra affair. Ronald Reagan's landslide second term is on the ropes.

But when NATO Ambassador David Abshire is recalled to try to get the facts straight, he discovers it all depends on what you believe..... George W Bush: A Higher Father 2000. As George W Bush scrapes into the White House, his surprise journey to the Presidency doesn't just follow in his father's footsteps. According to US Marine Gunnery Sergeant Louella Harkrader - a storyteller with her own peculiar angle - Dubya's political steps have been guided all along by a Higher Father, now exerting His influence on US politics. Donald Trump: This Isn't Happening 2016. At a campaign rally, Donald Trump declares: "I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn't lose voters."

City Killing, A (BBC Radio 4: Afternoon Play)

Author: Mike Walker Narrator: , A Full Cast, David Tse, Janice Acquah, Nathan Osgood, Nicholas Boulton Release Date: September 2011

A BBC Radio 4 drama about three City traders who launch an aggressive new hedge fund, which they then struggle to prevent from complete failure. Tim, Meredith and Harry are three sassy, thirty something traders who, tired of making money for someone else, combine to launch a new hedge fund. But it doesn't take long before they get seriously above themselves, losing a small fortune and making some pretty heavy enemies in the City markets. Facing financial meltdown, Harry is deputed to exploit a family connection with Bob Glass of Glassworks. Glass is the doyen of Wall Street - friend to charities and movie stars and the biggest, boldest, safest investor on the block. In New York, Harry makes a good impression. Glass takes to him like a son. This is the coup the young hedge fund has needed. With Glass' name, confidence will flourish and further, major investments will follow. But Harry has no sooner touched down at Heathrow, than news breaks of Glass' arrest by the FBI. His convoluted investment structure has collapsed. Billions have been lost by individuals, by charities and by burgeoning hedge funds, just like Harry's. Harry, Tim and Meredith have lost 1.2billion and rising. Glass, the most feared, loathed and admired man on Wall Street was just a simple confidence trickster, though on a mammoth scale. Now it's time to face the investors, and the fact that their credibility is virtually nil. This is a £1.2billion hole they aren't going to crawl out of. 'A City Killing' stars Nicholas Boulton as Harry Towers, Nathan Osgood as Bob Glass, David Tse as Tim and Janice Acquah as Meredith. Also featured in the cast are Pam Miles, Jonathan Tafler and Sam Dale.

Bear Head Audiobook

Bear Head

Author: Adrian Tchaikovsky Narrator: Laurence Bouvard, Nathan Osgood, William Hope Release Date: January 2021

In a sequel to the much-praised Dogs of War, Honey the genetically engineered bear takes a ride in Jimmy the Martian's head and starts a revolution on the Red Planet. Mars. The red planet. A new frontier for humanity: a civilization where humans can live in peace, lord and master of all they survey. But this isn't Space City from those old science-fiction books. It's more like Hell City, built into and from a huge crater. There's a big silk canopy over it, feeding out atmosphere as we generate it, little by little, because we can't breathe the air here. I guess it's a perfect place to live, if you want to live on Mars. At some point I must have wanted to live on Mars, because here I am. The money was supposed to be good, and how else was a working Joe like me going to get off-planet exactly? But I remember the videos they showed us - guys, not even in suits, watching robots and bees and Bioforms doing all the work - and they didn't quite get it right... 2021 Head of Zeus
