Alternative title
Bob Holness in conversation with John Mortimer
Date
1986
Description
John Mortimer - When asked whether he missed being a barrister he replied in the negative: ‘I wake up every morning thinking, ‘Thank God I don’t have to go to that Old Bailey and pretend to be respectful to one of Her Majesty’s Judges’. John Mortimer is not only an ex-barrister, but also an author, journalist, public speaker and creator of the universally-loved Rumpole of the Bailey. His interview with Bob Holness is both amusing and revealing - he talks about his life and career and chooses some of his favourite pieces of music.
