Wishful Drinking
In WISHFUL DRINKING, Carrie Fisher tells the true and intoxicating story of her life with inimitable wit. Born to celebrity parents, she was picked to play a princess in a little movie called Star Warswhen only 19 years old. But it isn't all sweetness and light sabres. Alas, aside from a demanding career and her role as a single mother (not to mention the hyperspace hairdo), Carrie also spends her free time battling addiction, weathering the wild ride of manic depression and lounging around various mental institutions. It's an incredible tale - from having Elizabeth Taylor as a stepmother, to marrying (and divorcing) Paul Simon, from having the father of her daughter leave her for a man, to ultimately waking up one morning and finding a friend dead beside her in bed.

Some Sunny Day
READ BY DAME VERA LYNN AND HER DAUGHTER VIRGINIA LEWIS-JONES. Forbidden love and family secrets In World War Two Liverpool in the heartrending new saga from the author of Goodnight Sweetheart. Born Vera Welch on 20 March, 1917 in the East End of London, Dame Vera Lynn's career was set from an early age - along with her father, who also did a `turn', she sang in Working Men's Clubs from just seven years old. She had a successful radio career with Joe Loss and Charlie Kunz in the 1920s and `30s, but it was with World War II that she became the iconic figure that captured the imagination of the national public. Her spirit and verve, along with her ability to connect with the men fighting for their country and those left behind praying for their loved ones, made her the `Forces' sweetheart'. Performing the songs that she will always be associated with, such as `We'll Meet Again' and `Yours', Vera toured Egypt, India and Burma to entertain the troops and bring them a sense of `back home'. Her career after the war flourished, with hits in the US and the UK, but Vera was never able to leave behind her wartime role and was deeply affected by what she had seen. Still heavily involved with veteran and other charities, this is Dame Vera's vivid story of her life and her war - from bombs and rations to dance halls and the searing heat of her appearances abroad. Epitomising British fortitude and hope, Dame Vera gives a vivid portrait of Britain at war, and a unique story of one woman who came to symbolize a nation.

Alfred Hitchcock: In His Own Words
In interviews ranging from 1955 to 1980, Alfred Hitchcock talks about the time he was locked in a police cell when he was a child and being typecast as a director of thrillers. He also discusses his early films; the advent of 'talkies'; planning Psycho ; American audiences; cinema techniques; horror films, and the influence of real crimes. He considers the difference between making films in America and Britain; the importance of lighting; his female leads, and being a practical joker. As well as critics, he also touches on avoiding cliches; murder in film; film editing and music; The Birds ; the star factor in actors, and making comedies. Please note that, due to the age and nature of this archive material, the sound quality may vary. AudioGO's In Their Own Words series features interviews with some of the key figures from the fields of entertainment, sport, politics and literature - many of which haven't been heard since their original transmission. This is a unique window into the past and is a chance for us to hear those who contributed to the richness of our cultural heritage.

Hollywood Greats Shirley Maclaine
In this fascinating series, veteran broadcaster Sir David Frost talks to a selection of his favourite film stars, beginning with Shirley MacLaine, who won an Oscar for her role in Terms of Endearment and starred in the third series of Downton Abbey. Shirley gives a frank account of her time in showbusiness, from her big break as a stand-in for actress Carol Haney to the huge success of films such as Sweet Charity and Irma la Douce. She remembers meeting Alfred Hitchcock for the first time (remarking that he looked like a ball) and her crush on 'Rat Pack' stalwart Dean Martin. Shirley also recounts how she became enthralled in the glamour and glitz of Hollywood when she took her younger brother, Warren Beatty, to the local movie house. She is eloquent on the subject of her extraordinary life, from mixing with America's political elite such as the powerful Kennedy family to UFOs and her sincere faith in reincarnation.

Remembering Peter Sellers
Phill Jupitus looks back at the career of one of our most remarkable funny men, as broadcast on BBC Radio 4. In the course of a career which spanned five decades, Peter Sellers rose from aspiring television mimicry to international fame and fortune. He was one of our biggest stars, loved for his role as Inspector Clouseau in the 'Pink Panther' films and his appearances in 'The Goon Show'. Yet his formative years, in the world of travelling show people, almost put him off the theatre for ever. He grew to hate the smell of greasepaint, but his early observation of voices and accents led to the discovery of an uncanny gift as an impressionist. With the help of archive material from his early days on radio and television, much of it among Sellers' own private collection, Phill Jupitus recounts the incredible career and talent of this `compulsive imitator'. Along the way he canvasses the opinion of Sellers' friends and colleagues, including Shirley MacLaine, David Lodge, Sir George Martin, Sir Harry Secombe and Michael Palin. This recording was previously released as 'Best Sellers: The Life and Times of Peter Sellers'.

I, Partridge: We Need To Talk About Alan
Journalist, presenter, broadcaster, husband, father, vigorous all-rounder - Alan Partridge - a man with a fascinating past and an amazing future. Gregarious and popular, yet Alan's never happier than when relaxing in his own five-bedroom, south-built house with three acres of land and access to a private stream. But who is this mysterious enigma? Alan Gordon Partridge is the best - and best-loved - radio presenter in the region. Born into a changing world of rationing, Teddy Boys, apes in space and the launch of ITV, Alan's broadcasting career began as chief DJ of Radio Smile at St. Luke's Hospital in Norwich. After replacing Peter Flint as the presenter of Scout About, he entered the top 8 of BBC sports presenters. But Alan's big break came with his primetime BBC chat show Knowing Me, Knowing You. Sadly, the show battled against poor scheduling, having been put up against News at Ten, then in its heyday. Due to declining ratings, a single catastrophic hitch (the killing of a guest on air) and the dumbing down of network TV, Alan's show was cancelled. Not to be dissuaded, he embraced this opportunity to wind up his production company, leave London and fulfil a lifelong ambition to return to his roots in local radio. Now single, Alan is an intensely private man but he opens up, for the second time, in this candid, entertaining, often deeply emotional - and of course compelling - memoir, written entirely in his own words. (Alan quickly dispelled the idea of using a ghost writer. With a grade B English Language O-Level, he knew he was up to the task.) He speaks touchingly about his tragic Toblerone addiction, and the painful moment when unsold copies of his first autobiography, Bouncing Back, were pulped like `word porridge'. He reveals all about his relationship with his ex-Ukrainian girlfriend, Sonja, with whom he had sex at least twice a day, and the truth about the thick people who make key decisions at the BBC. A literary tour de force, I, Partridge: We Need to Talk About Alan charts the incredible journey of one of our greatest broadcasters.

Naked
In Naked, David Sedaris's message alternately rendered in Fakespeare, Italian, Spanish, and pidgin Greek is the same: pay attention to me. Whether he's taking to the road with a thieving quadriplegic, sorting out the fancy from the extra-fancy in a bleak fruit-packing factory, or celebrating Christmas in the company of a recently paroled prostitute, this collection of memoirs creates a wickedly incisive portrait of an all-too-familiar world. It takes Sedaris from his humiliating bout with obsessive behavior in A Plague of Tics to the title story, where he is finally forced to face his naked self in the mirrored sunglasses of a lunatic. At this soulful and moving moment, he picks potato chip crumbs from his pubic hair and wonders what it all means. This remarkable journey into his own life follows a path of self-effacement and a lifelong search for identity, leaving him both under suspicion and overdressed.
