About this product
- DescriptionShelled and shot at in the Iranian Revolution. Nearly murdered in Sicily. Crucified by the Lord Chief Justice in the Appeal Court. Silenced by the BBC for telling the truth. This is the autobiography of Martin Young and his 45 years in television, working for all the major BBC news and current affairs programmes. It charts his battle with the legal and political establishment over his groundbreaking programme Rough Justice, which led to the release of five people who had been falsely imprisoned for crimes as serious as murder and sexual assault. As a foreign correspondent, Martin has reported from the Iranian Revolution, Gaza and the West Bank and told the story of the Mafia in both New York and Sicily. As a presenter and reporter on BBC Television since 1973, Martin has worked on shows such as Nationwide, Newsnight, Parama, and Rough Justice. Nationwide attracted up to twelve million viewers with a mixture of the silly and the serious news of the day across Britain and paved the way for dozens of news magazine programmes. Opposable Truths tells the stories that have contributed to almost half a century of cutting-edge broadcasting. Serious and amusing in turn, this gripping book offers a previously unseen glimpse of life inside broadcasting.
- Author BiographyMartin Young won the RTS Special Journalism Award for his programme Rough Justice, the Broadcasting Press Guild Award for Outstanding Contribution in front of the Camera and was the finalist at New York Radio Festival. Martin now runs his own television company, training senior executives, and lives in Oxford.
