R2D2 Lives in Preston: The Best of BBC 6 Music's Toast the Nation!

Pan Macmillan, 2010 - 256 Seiten
An affectionate and very funny look at Britain's favorite places and why we love them

Surprising and enlightening facts about specific places in the UK, including: Clitheroe has the largest pigeons in the UK. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards first agreed to form a band on the platform of Sidcup railway station. Derry entered Guinness Book of World Records in 2007 for the biggest gathering of Santas--13,000 in the one place. Join hundreds of contributors as they take a tour around the map of Britain to their favorite places, from the biggest city to the smallest village--with not a crap town among them. And when they get there, raise a glass to their achievements--whether they are humble, hilarious, genuinely impressive, or downright weird. Cheers!
