Publisher's Summary

Highlights from the acclaimed BBC Radio 4 programme, selected and introduced by Nigel Rees. This exclusive compilation was first published to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Quote, Unquote. It takes a fond look a the show in which celebrity guests are quizzed about quotations, famous and obscure, and invited to contribute their own quotes and anecdotes. From identifying Shakespearean dialogue, attributing witty last words, and putting names to famous one-liners, panellists go on to discuss everything that could possibly fall between two quotation marks, from eavesdropping to epitaphs.

This collection features more than 50 of the show's most entertaining guests, including David Attenborough, Alan Bennett, Kingsley Amis, Russell Harty, Judi Dench, Glenda Jackson, Denis Healey, Ian McKellen, Tim Rice, Terry Wogan, Peter Ustinov and Denis Norden.

A wonderful collection of BBC radio raconteurs

If you could sum up Quote Unquote in three words, what would they be?

BBC Radio Raconteurs.

Have you listened to any of David Attenborough’s other performances? How does this one compare?

This is not narrated by David Attenborough. He appears briefly, but the collection is narrated by Nigel Rees.- the host of this BBC radio show.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Definitely!

Any additional comments?

Please, Audible, correct the "Narrated by..." tag - it is inaccurate and misleading.
