The Autumn programme of the Kruger Cowne Breakfast Club launched at Home House this morning with an absorbing session featuring Charles Spencer and documentary filmmaker Tim Samuels.
Earl Spencer opened by explaining that the reason his lifelong friend Boris Johnson is not prime minister was because the day after Brexit Boris was playing cricket with him! He then gave a detailed account of Princess Diana, his late sister’s funeral and his famous eulogy, which had the audience spellbound. Tim talked to us about his insightful and witty book Who Stole My Spear? which explores how difficult it is being a man in today’s world – a sentiment that half the audience found sympathetic; and how for a BBC documentary he formed the world’s oldest rock group The ZImmers.
Charles became the ninth Earl Spencer on the death of his father in 1992. A godson of Her Majesty The Queen, he was also one of her pages of honour in the 1970s. Charles was a reporter on NBC’s Today show from 1986-1995 and is the author of a number of bestselling history books.
Tim is an award winning documentary filmmaker, broadcaster and author. His documentaries are shown on BBC One and BBC Two and he makes regular radio appearances on BBC Five Live and Radio 4. He approaches serious social issues in an entertaining way and then makes hard-hitting documentaries about them.
We’d like to let you know that both Charles and Tim are available for your events.
