Beyond The Title: The Yearbook by Josh Barry
Beyond The Title is a book based on the entertainment platform and podcast of the same name, created by the Isle of Wight writer Josh Barry. Despite having Athetoid Cerebral Palsy, which has severely impacted his mobility and speech, Josh and his team have conducted interviews with numerous remarkable showbiz personalities over the last four years. These interviews have formed a catalogue of insights from the breadth of the arts that capture the essence of Britain entertainment, past and present.
In this book, we get a snapshot of the careers of some of the most distinguished personalities of the latter part of the twentieth century, together with a cultural breakdown of the world they live in. It offers a contextual analysis of where these figures sit in the nation’s psyche, and an exploration of their unique journeys to becoming some of Britain’s biggest stars. In short, this is the story of light entertainment through the eyes of some of its most recognizable faces. So join Josh and his assistants as they explore the enigmatic world of show business in an insightful and entertaining read.
