Removing from North to West Yorkshire. Looks interesting, although I did at first think it was non-fiction.

Borrowed it from Deltic before he read it, excellent book very readable believable characters and learnt a lot about the BBC. Interesting authors notes about the real life person

MrsDeltic was enjoying this book so much that I had to grab it as soon as she finally put it down. The book is a nicely written historical novel about the early days of the BBC, and particularly the friction between Hilda Matheson Head of Talks and the Director General, John Reith told through the fictional character Maisie Musgrave. A couple of minor criticisms in that South Yorkshire was mentioned about 50 years before it came into existence and I that one or two phrases used were a bit too modern, but I would still give it 9 out of 10.

The book made me want to look more deeply into the real people within, particularly Hilda.
