Dr Phil Hammond's interests in comedy, journalism and the world of medicine are reflected in his choice of literature in this edition of With Great Pleasure. We hear from the man who was his mentor in the world of comedy, Miles Kington; there are extracts from the journalistic writings of Clive James and Martha Gellhorn; and from the preface of The Doctor's Dilemma by Bernard Shaw comes a salutary lesson for contemporary medicine that was written over one hundred years ago.
Producer Paul Dodgson.
