James Naughtie, the acclaimed author and BBC broadcaster, joins us live to share his unique insight into the country that has fascinated him and drawn him across the Atlantic for half a century.
On the Road is filled with anecdotes, memories, tears and laughter reflecting Naughtie’s characteristic warmth and enthusiasm. As a student, Naughtie watched the fall of President Richard Nixon in 1974, and subsequently as a journalist followed the story of the country – its politicians, artists, wheeler-dealers and the people who make it what it is, in the New York melting pot or the western deserts.
Few people are better placed to offer an intelligent and thoughtful analysis of the United States – none with so much humour, wisdom and affection.
