About the Author:

Peter Pagnamenta is a writer and documentary maker who has made many historical series for television including the 26-part People's Century, the BBC history of the twentieth century, and the eight-part All Our Working Lives. He is a former editor of Panorama, and while at Cambridge was Editor of Varsity (1962). He recently edited The Hidden Hall for Trinity Hall.

Review:

"Suitably emollient on the whole, though with sharp edges in places, this compendium of low living and high thinking, of student press and Nobel Prizemen ... will enjoy a wide readership." The Times Literary Supplement, 16 December 2009 "Chock-full of images and bursting with contributions from a veritable Who's Who of twentieth-century Cambridge alumni, Pagnamenta's book is entertaining, informative, and up-to-date. Four stars." Varsity, 30 January 2009
