Born in Leeds, West Yorkshire, John showed an early interest in newspapers when, aged 11, he wrote the 'Grimthorpe Street Gazette': a one-page paper detailing the latest goings-on in his street. It was a short-lived enterprise, not least as he only had one copy of it (which he charged neighbours a penny to borrow and read). It was whilst working at the Yorkshire Post that he heard of a new opening at the BBC - a move that was to change his life forever. . . Throughout the 1970s and 80s, John was, to children and parents alike, a friendly guide to the big wide world and to adulthood, breaking such news as the Challenger shuttle disaster in 1986 on Newsround. Since then, having presented Countryfile from across the breadth of Britain, John has introduced us to the people. landscapes and animals which make it so special. He has done for our countryside what Attenborough has done across the world, and now we get to hear the story of a national treasure. ©2019 John Craven (P)2019 Penguin Audio

    I remember John Craven on Newsround, Swap Shop and of course Countryfile. I thoroughly enjoyed his autobiography. It is well written as you’d expect from someone with a strong early background in journalism but also warm and funny. He never seems to take himself seriously and comes across as a nice man, grateful for all the opportunities life has given him.

    Very readable, with sufficient detail, but not too much.
