The Nation's Favourite: The True Adventures of Radio 1 - Paperback

ISBN: 0571197353

[SR: 198967], Paperback, [EAN: 9780571197354], Faber & Faber, Faber & Faber, Book, [PU: Faber & Faber], Faber & Faber, This is an account of a year in the life of BBC Radio 1 during a period when attempts were being made to reverse a trend which had seen the loss of millions of listeners and the departure of leading disc jockeys. The author was allowed behind-the-scenes access, including management meetings., At first glance, a year in the life of a radio station seems a curiously insubstantial topic for a full-length book. But Simon Garfield was fortunate that the 12 months he spent as a fly on the wall of Radio 1 were among the most eventful in the station's 30-year history. To put the ensuing revolution in context, it is important to remember that for many years Radio 1 had been the country's only national pop network, and as such, its stranglehold on the nation's pop tastes was unquestioned. Garfield's arrival coincided with a change of direction: under controller Mathew Bannister, the network was determined to ditch its middle-aged image.The general impression of Radio 1 at the time was summed up by comedian Harry Enfield's archetypal babbling DJ, with the music always coming a distant second to the egos: "Tuesday's the only between Monday and Wednesday-type day we've got, mate. It may not have the glamour and excitement of a Saturday, or the mournfulness of a Monday morn, but it's our Tuesday, the good, old-fashioned, honest to goodness, down to earth, great British Tuesday, and if those Eurocrats, Bureaucrats and other Bonkerscats try and take our Tuesday away from us, they'll have go get past me first!"In the end it was Chris Evans who single-handedly gave Radio 1 some credibility--and probably prevented it being privatised; and Garfield's chronicle of Evans' rise and fall is riveting--a first-hand account of truly Machiavellian court politics. --Patrick Humphries, 276151, Commercial, Financial, Industrial & Taxation, 276149, Scots Law, 275945, Law, 68, Business, Finance & Law, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 271343, Britain & Ireland, 772060, British Heads of State, 271353, Early British & Roman Britain, 271352, Anglo-Saxon 500-1000, 271344, Norman and Medieval 1001-1500, 271345, Early Modern 1501-1700 (Tudors, Stuarts, Commonwealth, Restoration, Glorious Revolution), 271346, Queen Anne, Georgian, Victorian 1701-1901, 771730, Edwardian and Early 20th Century 1901-1913, 271350, World War I 1914-1918, 771732, Inter-war Period 1919-1938, 271349, Post-war Period, 1946-Present, 771734, The Norman Conquest, 771744, Black Death, 771738, Wars of the Roses, 771742, Reformation in Britain, 771740, English Civil War, 771746, Industrial Revolution, 772174, Peninsular War, 772170, Boer Wars, 772172, Crimean War, 771748, Falklands War, 771774, Gulf War, 4117771, Ireland, 4117751, Scotland, 4117761, Wales, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 512992, Britain, 512982, History of Film, 270433, Film, 73, Music, Stage & Screen, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 270580, Radio, 73, Music, Stage & Screen, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 496718, Media & Communication Industries, 270447, Film, 496724, Press & Journalism, 496720, Radio, 496722, Television, 275700, Communication Studies, 276411, Social Sciences, 60, Society, Politics & Philosophy, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books

Five years ago, BBC Radio 1 gained a new controller. Matthew Bannister said he was going to reinvent the station, the most popular in Europe. But things didn't go exactly to plan. The station lost millions of listeners. Its most famous DJs left, and their replacements proved to be disasters. Radio 1's commercial rivals regarded the internal turmoil with glee. For a while a saviour arrived, in. Five years ago, BBC Radio 1 gained a new controller. Matthew Bannister said he was going to reinvent the station, the most popular in Europe. But things didn't go exactly to plan. The station lost millions of listeners. Its most famous DJs left, and their replacements proved to be disasters. Radio 1's commercial rivals regarded the internal turmoil with glee. For a while a saviour arrived, in the shape of Chris Evans. But his behaviour caused further upheavals, and his eventual departure provoked another mass desertion by listeners. What was to be done? In the middle of this crisis, Radio 1 bravely (or foolishly) allowed the writer Simon Garfield to observe its workings from the inside. For a year he was allowed unprecedented access to management meetings and to DJs in their studios, to research briefings and playlist conferences. Everyone interviewed spoke in passionate detail about their struggle to make their station credible and successful once more. The result is a gripping and often hilarious portrait a much loved national institution as it battles back from the brink of calamity.
