A golden Oldie

In celebration of his 100th birthday Willaim Geoge Bunter, better known of course as Billy Bunter, features proudly on the cover of the Oldie magazine this week.

The Oldie promises “…Deliciously politically incorrect, the Bunter stories were nevertheless underpinned by the virtues of tolerance, decency and loyalty. Bill Hagerty celebrates the Fat Owl’s centenary”.

The fat owl of the Remove alos had radio programme dedicated to him this week. It was on Radio 4 on Tuesday (19th, at 11:30 am) and was entitled ‘Billy Bunter’s Birthday Bash’ and was presented by Gyles Brandreth. It’ll be on the radio 4 website for a bit I’m sure.
