Terry Jones presides over a conversation between best-selling author Philip Pullman and his former schoolteacher Enid Jones. In an intimate and revealing setting in the Welsh coast town of Harlech, they talk about Philip's first day in school, his early attempts at storytelling, the craft of poetry, reading, writing and other memories.

They reveal how their pupil-teacher relationship has ripened into a friendship that has endured nearly fifty years. Pullman explains the reasons behind his acknowledgement of his former teacher at the end of the His Dark Materials trilogy.
