Descrizione libro Hutchinson, UK, 1972. Hardcover. Condizione libro: Very Good. Condizione sovraccoperta: Very Good. 1st Edition. h/b 368 pages, condition is very good. John Charles Walsham Reith was one of the great enigmas of the age. He was 33 when he applied for the job of general manager of the British Broadcasting Company, then in the process of formation. At the time he had no idea what broadcasting was. The result of his appointment has passed into history for his work during the next sixteen years profoundly affected the lives of all of us, not only in Britain but in many parts of the world. Even in its early days, both as a company and a corporation, the BBC excited controversy and was involved in disputes with political leaders. Some of the clashes were dramatic, leading to repercussions not unlike those of the present day, when the status as well as the standards of the BBC are underfire, so that a Prime Minister could say as did Ramsay MacDonald in the thirties: "Sometimes I wonder which is the government - we or you." The BBC, under Reith's firm leadership, became one of the main formative influences of an entire generation. Other countries which wanted to emulate the British concept of public service broadcasting used it as a model In many ways, too, it set the standard for other great public corporations which were to be set up by the central government but to operate independently of it. The 6ft. 6in. giant with the scarred face was a familiar public figure.To many, the son of the manse, at the head of the great Corporation which he had created, must have seemed to be almost a symbol of success. How was it that, even at the time of his greatest outward triumph, he was obsessed with the conviction of his own failure? Why did the God-fearing public servant suffer from the literal certainty that he was damned? What canker gave rise to his inner despair and outward bitterness? Why, after he left the BBC (a strange enough story in itself) did the man, whose ambition it was to be Viceroy of India, never again filI an office which, in his own phrase, "stretched" him to more than a fraction of his capacity ? To answer these and many other puzzling questions is the formidable task facing the biographer of Lord Reith. No one is better qualified for it than Andrew Boyle. He first met Reith in the 1950s when working on his celebrated biography of Lord Trenchard, "father" of the R.A.F. From then until almost the time of Reith's death Andrew Boyle met him frequently, and the ageing giant spoke with ever increasing frankness about his life, his battles, his friends and enemies, his triumphs and failures and, above all, his state of mind, knowing that everything he said would be taken down and one day used in evidence. The result is a fascinating biography in depth, praising Reith's achievements, frankly admitting his shortcomings, throwing an intimate and surprising light upon his private life. It is undoubtedly one of the outstanding biographies of a contemporary figure to appear in recent times. Born in Dundee and educated in Aberdeen and Paris, Andrew Boyle was still a student when he was caught up in the collapse of France in 1940. He escaped through St. Jean de Luz, and joined the RAF Volunteer Reserve, spending most of his active service in the Far East. After the war, he joined the BBC and launched the World at One in 1965, with William Hardcastle as 'anchor-man', the World this Weekend in 1967, and the five o'clock radio news-magazine P.M. in 1970. He is still executive editor of all three programmes. Codice libro della libreria 050285
