ONE SHOW BOOK OF TRUE TALES

ICON FILMS    Book Number: 85672    Product format: Hardback

Out of the box British eccentricity with cold cases to heat up your inner detective, epic fails, good sports, great British heists, and escapes, medical curios, music, maths, stars turning up in strange places, all from the popular BBC TV teatime show's fascinating stories. Researched by independent producers at Icon Films, here are 100 of the quirkiest, strangest: most mind-boggling government cover-ups, and even a story about how a nudist filmmaker came up with an object that no self-respecting hipster home could do without. How exactly would the gang in The Italian Job have escaped with their loot from a coach hanging precariously from an alpine cliff? Did you know that all the maps and cash needed for the D-Day invasions were produced and stored in a fake bakery in a Bristol suburb? The world's first cash machine had a small man hidden inside in case it malfunctioned during its grand unveiling. A celebration of British eccentricity and innovation and lots of 'I didn't know that' facts. Great for trivia buffs, 282pp.
