When Michael Palin was researching his novel Hemingway's Chair, his interest was stimulated by Hemingway's appetite for travel and "Papa's" evocations of the places he knew. In pursuit of Hemingway, Palin begins at the beginning, in Oak Park, Idaho, then travels to Italy where Hemingway served in the Ambulance Brigade in the First World War. Then on to Paris in the "Roaring Twenties", bull-running at Pamplona and Hemingway's love affair with Spain. Hemingway became disillusioned and returned to the States, where he lived on Key West in Florida before moving to Sun Valley, Idaho, until the Spanish civil war recalled him.
066 Prof John McKendrick: refereeing where it started, warmups, red cards, Michael Palin & child poverty
Down The Divisions
JOHN McKENDRICK is a referee who got his break in the juniors before taking charge of over 300 senior games. But after retiring from top level football he wasn’t finished - and wanted to go back to where it all began. Now every weekend you’ll find John – Professor John to give him his full title - as a man in the middle somewhere in the West of Scotland League. John joins us on the show this week and reveals just how good a grounding junior football was – AND explains why he’s not prepared to hang up his whistle just yet. If you happen to be at one of his games you can look out for his legendary warmup, which he tells us all about. We hear whether referees really take notice of their ratings in the papers – and why there is a shortage of officials right now. There’s also the time he held up the injury time board without realising the batteries were flat – and just how many red cards he dished out. Plus there’s the day he got lost going to an orienteering competition, how Michael Palin inspired him to cycle to Nepal and his passion for ending child poverty. It’s all here as we go Down The Divisions. We'd like to give a quick mention to our sponsors FortyFour Creative.

pordenonelegge.it - Festa del libro con gli autori
Incontro con Michael Palin. Intervista di Alberto Garlini Alle dieci e trenta del mattino del 19 maggio 1845 l’Erebus e la Terror levarono le ancore. Fu l’inizio di uno dei peggiori disastri nella storia delle esplorazioni artiche. In questo suggestivo libro Michael Palin offre un resoconto di prima mano del percorso e delle condizioni affrontati dall’equipaggio dell’Erebus che, nel 1846, insieme alla Terror, svanì dalla faccia della terra. Cos’è veramente accaduto all’Erebus? Com’era fatta? Dov’era riuscita ad arrivare? Edizione 2020 www.pordenonelegge.it
