Here is the news : the BBC and the Second World War by Richard Havers( Book )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Second World War was both the first and the last time that the radio was the pre-eminent source of news of a major conflict. The news was important not just for the daily update on how the war was progressing but also for the specifics of particular operations in which loved ones, friends or neighbours were involved. The BBC's coverage of all aspects of the fighting was unprecedented and provided not just daily news, but also documentary type coverage. Richard Havers describes how the BBC gathered news and examines the role of journalists with the forces overseas. He explains how the news was broadcast - the daily routines, notable broadcasters and famous interviews, the language that was peculiar to radio presentation and of course the BBC 'accent'. By taking a selection of news bulletins from the war years as examples, the author illustrates the difference between the broadcast and the facts for key stories. Richard's lively narrative is complemented by a selection of contemporary photographs and illustrations

Classic aircraft by John Havers( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aircraft have revolutionized the way we live. Billions of passengers take to the air every year and around the world airlines operate almost 80,000 flights daily. Before the revolution, flying was, as often as not, a personal struggle in which a lone pilot and his single-engine aircraft tangled with the elements, the limits of his own endurance and the uncertainties of technology. Many of the endeavors of the early aviation pioneers ended in heroic failure. Quite a few of the aircraft pictured in this unique collection of the world's classic aircraft met the same fate. The photos, many of which have never been published, tell the story of civil aviation; illustrating how quickly aircraft design developed and how radically things changed from the early days of balloon flight through to supersonic travel. As aircraft designer Igor Sikorsky said, Aeronautics was neither an industry nor a science. It was a miracle."--Publisher's description
