Gyles Brandreth's What Ho, Your Majesty?


2016042220190404 (R4)

In a specially commissioned new comic story for Radio 4, the author and broadcaster Gyles Brandreth presents his very own 90th birthday gift to the Queen.

As a lifelong admirer of P G Wodehouse, Gyles has chosen to re-imagine the bygone world of gentlemen’s clubs, pan-handling politicians and helpful St James’s shopkeepers - the world of Willie Dabney, confidant of the Prime Minister and godson to Her Majesty.

Willie wants only to do the best for everybody, but his generosity gets the better of him when he is asked to run an errand for the Queen, involving a senior peer, the Astronomer Royal and a hostess gift with a difference.
