Book cover of Oxford Boy by Will Wyatt

Former BBC executive Will Wyatt tells the story of his humble Oxford upbringing in the 1940s and 50s and how his childhood was transformed by a scandalous and unexpected event.

Wyatt’s story is of the Oxford of bricklayers and the Cowley Works not the dreaming spires.

It features tales of betting, conkers, fag cards, ‘prozzie watching’, and eccentric aunts and uncles. It is also about how a rock steady family and gifted teachers helped Wyatt to realise his dreams.

Review of his memoir:  ‘Joyful and often very funny, the story moves along at a constantly entertaining pace. It’s a great celebration of growing up.’ — Michael Palin
