The Best Years of His Life

Thursday 17 April 2008 11:30-12:00 (Radio 4 FM)


Patrick Humphries explores the life and career of an author whose works are household names but about whom little is known. Paul Brickhill's books include The Great Escape, Reach for the Sky and The Dambusters, all of which were made into iconic films. Shot down over North Africa, he was imprisoned in the notorious Stalag Luft III. But why did Brickhill stop writing in 1962, never to publish anything again?

Followed by News.
