Bill Wyman's Treasure Islands is a journey of discovery through the historical treasures found on these shores." "In the company of a most unexpected historian we discover when and where finds were made, together with descriptions of the objects and how they came to be there. The legal and archaeological issues around treasure-hunting are also explored, as are the dos and don'ts of identifying prime sites, keeping accurate records and identifying objects." "In this illustrated book, Bill Wyman and Richard Havers have created a treasure trove for the beginner or the more experienced archaeological explorer and for anyone interested in finding out about the exciting discoveries made in the British Isles."--BOOK JACKET
Here is the news : the BBC and the Second World War by Richard Havers ( Book )
5 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 104 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

Based on the words of contemporary newspaper reports the story comes alive as it never has before. The depth of detail is fascinating, revealing fresh insights into a tragedy that continues to captivate us today. Use of contemporary newspaper photography and iconic images all help to make this book one of a kind."--from publisher

Soon after abandoning his native New York in the 1960s to pursue his career in the UK, Visconti found himself in the thick of the emerging glam rock movement.

He has since worked with dozens of famous artists, among them Thin Lizzy, Morrissey, Iggy Pop, U2, and Wings. In this riveting autobiography, Visconti recalls the stories from his early days up until his present life back in New York.
