Being David Archer and Other Unusual Ways of Earning a Living

Actor Tim Bentinck takes a behind-the-scenes look at the hugely successful radio series The Archers, where he has played David Archer for 37 years, and looks back at a varied life that has seen him be the voice of ‘Mind the Gap’ on the Piccadilly Line and sit in the House of Lords. His autobiography is titled ‘Being David Archer – And Other Unusual Ways of Earning a Living’. Those ‘unusual’ ways include computer programming, travel journalism, song writing, truck driving, US tour guide driving Trek America buses twice round the States, working as a farmer, a builder, a salesman and managing to hold down a successful career in every kind of acting work available. One review says, ‘Unlike many acting memoirs, this isn't a succession of thespian tales of freezing digs, forgotten lines and name dropping. This is an articulate, funny and thoughtful account of how to survive an insecure life.’
