In search of British heroes by Tony Robinson( Book )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Boudica, Macbeth, King Harold, William Wallace, better known as Braveheart, and Robin Hood come to us as a mixture of fact and fiction. They are larger-than-life. Their lives and sometimes tragic deaths symbolise something greater than themselves. From the Roman invasion to the Age of Chivarly, they mark milestones in British history and the British character." "Tony Robinson sets out on a journey across the country to retrace the stories of the real people behind these legends, to find out where they lived, loved and fought. In going behind the official story, he not only uncovers even more remarkable facts about some of the greatest Britons who ever lived, but also shows them to be truly local heroes: legends who lived on our doorsteps, who have left their mark not only in the annals but beneath our factories, fields and schools." "These heroes belong to a shared heritage and this is a shared journey. Maps and directions enable readers to make the quest with Tony as he burns away the mist of time to reveal the flesh-and-blood characters behind the ghosts that still haunt every corner of our country and culture."--Jacket

Jack London's dystopian vision of the future. Sixty years after Great Red Death, a scarlet plague, wipes out mankind, a handful of survivors have established their own civilization.

An old man is the only one who can convey the wonders of that bygone era, and the horrors of the plague that brought about its end. What future lies in store for the remnants of mankind can only be surmised, and the deadly virus, which kills in a matter of minutes, remains a terrifying prophecy of the perils of globalization and the damage humans wreak on their environment. -- Publisher description
No cunning plan : my story by Tony Robinson( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

AUTOBIOGRAPHY: ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT. Sir Tony Robinson is a much-loved actor, presenter and author with a stellar career lasting over fifty years. Now, in his long-awaited autobiography, he reveals how the boy from South Woodford went from child stardom in the first stage production of Oliver!, a pint-sized pickpocket desperately bleaching his incipient moustache, to comedy icon Baldrick, the loyal servant and turnip aficionado in Blackadder. It wasn't all plain sailing though. Along the way he was bullied by Steve Marriott, failed to impress Liza Minnelli and was pushed into a stinking London dock by John Wayne. He also entertained us with Maid Marion and Her Merry Men (which he wrote and starred in) and coped manfully when locked naked outside a theatre in Lincoln during the live tour of comedy series Who Dares Wins. He presented Time Team for twenty years, watching countless gardens ruthlessly dug up in the name of archaeology, and risked life and limb filming The Worst Jobs in History
