On My Way To Jorvik: A humorous memoir of how a boy with a vision became a radical designer, created Dusty Bin, made films with Kenny Evere (Paperback)
'Why can't museums be more like films?' thought 11-year-old John Sunderland.
He was a truant in a West Yorkshire grammar school, a maths failure, a great respecter of art and history and loved films. He went on to create the iconic British TV cartoon character Dusty Bin and made films with the zany comedian Kenny Everett. He turned out to be the perfect person to solve the quandary of the British archeologists who wanted to bring the 10th century finds of Viking York to life for the public.
Told with unremitting Yorkshire wit, you'll romp chortling through this uproarious, incredible behind-the-scenes account of how John landed the position of Project Designer of the original Jorvik Viking Centre and changed the way Britain's cultural heritage would be presented from then on.
