Escaping with His Life – From Dunkirk to D-Day & Beyond, written and narrated by Sir Nicholas Young.

Very few British soldiers could lay claim to such a full war as Leslie Young. Having survived the retreat to and evacuation from Dunkirk, he volunteered for the newly formed Commandos and took part in their first major operation, the raid on the Lofoten Islands. He fought and was captured in Tunisia. He escaped in Italy before his PoW camp at Fontanellato was taken over by the Nazis after the September 1943 Italian armistice. He then spent six months on the run in the Apennine mountains aided by many brave and selfless Italians, who were risking their lives in so doing. He eventually reached Allied lines but not before two of his helpers were tragically killed by German and American fire respectively.

On returning to England he immediately signed up for the invasion of North West Europe and, despite being wounded, fought his way through to Germany. He was twice mentioned in despatches. Thanks to his son Nicholas’ research, Major Young’s inspiring and thrilling story can now be told.

Angel Meadow – Victorian Britain’s Most Savage Slum, written by Dean Kirby, narrated by Nigel Gair.

‘It is all free fighting here. Even some of the windows do not open, so it is useless to cry for help. Dampness and misery, violence and wrong, have left their handwriting in perfectly legible characters on the walls.’ ~ Manchester Guardian, 1870

Step into the Victorian underworld of Angel Meadow, the vilest and most dangerous slum of the Industrial Revolution. In the shadow of the world’s first cotton mill, 30,000 souls trapped by poverty are fighting for survival as the British Empire is built upon their backs. Thieves and prostitutes keep company with rats in overcrowded lodging houses and deep cellars on the banks of a black river, the Irk. Gangs of ‘scuttlers’ stalk the streets in pointed, brass-tipped clogs. Those who evade their clutches are hunted down by cholera, typhoid and tuberculosis. Lawless drinking dens and a cold slab in the dead house provide the only relief from a filthy and frightening world.

In this shocking book, journalist Dean Kirby takes readers on a hair-raising journey through the gin palaces, alleyways and underground vaults of this nineteenth century Manchester slum considered so diabolical it was re-christened ‘hell upon earth’ by Friedrich Engels.

Enter Angel Meadow if you dare…

One Man’s Climb: A Journey of Trauma, Tragedy and Triumph on K2, written and narrated by Adrian Hayes.

A deeply moving story of the beauty and brutality of life, and death, on the world’s most unpredictable and perilous mountain.

Sitting just lower than Everest at 8,611 metres above sea level on the China–Pakistan border, the Savage Mountain claims the lives of even the most experienced climbers. Alongside severe altitude, the weather is notoriously volatile and the climb relentlessly steep. A staggering one in four attempts result in death on the mountain.

In One Man’s Climb, Adrian Hayes details an intensely personal account of his attempts to climb K2 – first in 2013 and again in 2014. Absorbing and self-reflective, his journey is as much a story of climbing a mountain as it is a testament to the human spirit’s ability to endure.

The Real Beatrix Potter, written by Nadia Cohen, narrated by Rosie Ackerman.

The Real Beatrix Potter is a fascinating and revealing biography of one of the world’s most cherished children’s authors. Beatrix Potter’s famous little white books have enchanted generations of young readers who adored the characters she created and of course her own distinctive illustrations.

Born into a typically repressed Victorian family it was assumed that Beatrix would achieve little more than finding herself a rich husband, and so there was no point in bothering to educate her. But the Potters underestimated their daughter. Stifled by the lack of stimulation, she educated herself in art, science, and of course a great love of the natural world.

The success of Peter Rabbit proved her to be a creative genius who could have become the toast of the London literary scene, but when her fiancé tragically died Beatrix retreated to the Lake District where she reinvented herself as a successful farmer, a canny businesswoman and an early environmental pioneer.

Passionately campaigning to save the area from development she helped establish the National Trust. Despite her great wealth, Beatrix Potter lived out her days in humble anonymity.
