  Burchill on Beckham Wednesday 31 October 2001  
Burchill on Beckham Julie Burchill has written no less than a personal eulogy to David Beckham - Britain's most successful footballer.

In Burchill on Beckham, she praises him as a modern working class hero - taking football out of the darkness and into the light of a new kind of masculinity.
She explains why she thinks David Beckham is a perfect role model for today's new man.
John Williams, Director of the Centre for Football Research at Leicester University, joins the discussion.
On Beckham (Jonathan Cape, ISBN: 0224061917, £10.00).
