Remembering Alan - 7 October 2008
A year on from Alan Coren's death, Christopher Matthew talks to his friends and relatives about their recollections of the comic writer and broadcaster who was always sharp but never vicious.
Including contributions from family, friends and fellow writers Libby Purves, Michael Bywater and Susan Jeffreys.
From The Radio Times
It's like Alan Coren's own writing: Remembering Alan is a short piece that is warm yet at the same time throbs with a wit that will make you laugh violently. Friend and colleague Christopher Matthew doesn't try to summarise Coren's work-the beloved radio appearances, his newspaper and magazine articles and more than 20 books. Instead, he captures a flavour of the man by interviewing the people who knew him best; long-time colleagues such as Eve Pollard. Producer Paul Kobrak has his own story about working with Coren: "I was in awe of him originally;" he told RT. "Almost a bit terrified because of the sharpness of his mind. But he expected excellence from you because that's what he gave." A new collection of his writings, edited by Giles and Victoria Coren, is this week's Book of the Week.
