Ruskin Park: Sylvia, Me and the BBC

  • This event has passed.

Rory Cellan-Jones

Saturday 7th October 11:20 - 12:20 | St Mary’s Church

Rory Cellan-Jones knew he was the child of a love affair between two BBC employees. But until his mother died and he found a file labelled “For Rory” he had no idea of the extent of their relationship, and why his unconventional childhood had so tested the bond between him and his mother. What Cellan-Jones uncovered in the papers, letters and diaries is a romantic relationship between Sylvia and James, the restrictive forces of post-war respectability and the prejudice that ended it.
