The home of Jennings by Anthony Buckeridge

 

Anthony Buckeridge Reads Jennings

Anthony read these four extracts from his Jennings' books at the Edinburgh Festival in August 2001. It was a most successful occasion and in response to requests from many people I arranged to have this video made in our Village Hall at Barcombe in the following September.

I have had the video re-edited and the original music from Children's Hour - The Old Clockmaker: Charles William - added to link each extract.

It was to be his last public performance: he became ill in the following February (2002) and he died 28 June 2004 aged 92. He was very frail physically, but mentally alert until the end. He died peacefully at home.
