After a childhood of silence and secrets, a compelling journey of discovery from broadcaster, podcaster and rescue dog tweeter @Ruskin147.
Rory Cellan-Jones knew he was the child of a love affair between two BBC employees. But until his mother, Sylvia, died and he found a file labelled 'For Rory' he had no idea of their beginnings or ending. Or why his peculiarly isolated childhood had so tested the bond between him and Sylvia, who was single-parenting two sons in a one-bedroom fl at while working full time through the Fifties and Sixties. 'For Rory,' his mother had written on the file before she died, 'in the hope that it will help him understand how it really was ...'
This is a compelling account of what Rory uncovered in the papers, letters and diaries; a relationship between two colleagues (two romantics) and the restrictive forces of post-war respectability and prejudice that ended it. It is also an evocation of the centrifugal force at the centre of all their lives - the BBC itself.

Both tender and troubling, the drama moves from wartime radio
broadcasts, to the glamour of 1950s television studios, to the golden era of BBC drama. His father may have directed The Forsyte Saga and Rory may have watched him from afar, but he didnt actually meet him until much later, in adulthood, when the damage to his mother's life had already been done.
Praise for Always On:
'Delightfully insightful and intensely readable.' - Stephen Fry
