A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

'A face like a cartoonist's suicide note' A.A. Gill, Sunday Times Richard Whiteley was the first person to appear on Channel 4 on Tuesday 2nd November 1982. With the words "As the countdown to the launch of a new channel ends, a new Countdown begins". Nobody was to know, of course, that the new face on the channel was still to be there 17 years later, and that Countdown would be dominating the channels Top Ten ratings. Richard Whiteley is known for his jackets and his puns - opinion is divided as to which is worse. However he is regarded as a cult figure among a broad section of society. He has appeared in such shows as Hale and Pace, TFI Friday, Shooting Stars, Light Lunch, Mrs Merton, Fantasy Football, received a 'Gotcha' from Noel Edmonds and is constantly on the receiving end of Terry Wogan's gentle mockery. He most recently appeared on McCoist and MacAuley and 'The Greatest Rory Ever Told', as himself and as Carol Vordeman. He was the hit of the Edinburgh Fringe this year with his one man show... 'If you like Alan Partridge you'll love Richard Whiteley. Singing along with the Countdown theme and pretending to be the Countdown clock was a stroke of brilliance.' Independent

Synopsis:

Richard Whiteley, famous nationwide for his groaning puns and dubious taste in jackets and ties, takes us on an hilarious and vicarious ramble through his career. As presenter of Channel 4's long-running hit show Countdown, he writes with the same chatty and witty style which has made him so endearing to young and old alike - not to mention the middle-aged! From his early years in daily journalism - a paper delivery boy - through his days as school thin boy at Giggleswick, where he sat at the feet of teacher Russell Harty, to Cambridge, ITN, Yorkshire Television and, of course, Countdown. He tells how he escaped the Brighton Bomb, and the terrors of interviewing Mrs Thatcher, and how he became the most famous ferret tamer in the world. Richard writes frankly about the many disasters which have befallen him on his way to becoming a true TV matinee 'idle'. It's not a chronicle of achievement - more a conundrum of unlikely events, which answers many questions - like how? And why? Now read on!
