Max Beerbohm and the BBC Written by BARRY CARMAN with Cyril Shaps as ' Max ' Narrator Noel Johnson
Max Beerbohm once defined the quality of a broadcast by G. K. Chesterton as ' very good, don't you think? ... A friend in one's room.' His own famous broadcasts had that same quality, whether he was evoking the music halls of his youth or remembering Mr Gladstone. This is the story of the association between ' Max ' and the BBC and includes, as well as extracts from the broadcasts themselves, previously unpublished correspondence from the BBC's Written Archives.
