I was on BBC5 live last evening doing the Paper reviews and this story came up.
Jeremy Paxman, the broadcaster, will tell of his decades-long career at the BBC as part of a three-book deal for almost £1 million, it has been claimed. The former Newsnight presenter will not pull any punches in his recollections of an illustrious 42-year career at the broadcasting corporation, the Sunday Times said. The second of the three books he will produce with publisher William Collins will tell of his time at the BBC, the paper said, including his experiences of the politicians he interviewed.
My view is that Paxman is entitled to make as much loot as possible from his memoirs and I am sure he will lift more than few rocks so we can see what crawled underneath. The problem is that it took him to LEAVE the Corporation to spill the beans. Can I also add I think he is overrated?
