David Thomson

A talk on the life and work of radio producer and writer David Thomson by Tim Dee. Thomson, who died in 1988 wrote brilliant and original books on hares and seals and made radio programmes on the same subjects. He also wrote three separate volumes of an autobiography - one set in Nairn, one in Ireland and one in Camden Town. His books are still known, some of his radio programmes survive in the BBC archives, but his achievements, Tim Dee (also a radio producer and writer on the natural world) argues, deserve to be more widely celebrated.
