My Bio Broadcaster David Shute
David made Broadcasting history as the first person to report 'live' to a National audience whilst flying through the Sound Barrier. A BBC network Reporter and latterly Senior Talks Producer at BBC Pebble Mill, David was schooled at Brentwood in Essex. "Even then I knew I wanted to be a broadcaster", he recalls.
Working on newspapers in Reading, he helped to found Hospital Radio. At the BBC in Bristol he established a reputation for adventurous reporting with a talent for outside broadcasts.
His army background made him a trusted journalist welcomed by units in trouble spots around the world. As a Pebble Mill producer he was a familiar figure at Stratford on Royal Shakespeare Theatre First Nights, and he employed many of the leading lights from the Company for programmes including ‘Book at Bedtime’ and ‘Morning Story’.
David and his wife Jane live in Calpe on Spain's Costa Blanca.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
More adventures, some in and some out of the BBC. Also finding my wife's American father whom she'd never seen. Then there are the caperings on Cruise ships!
