Summary
In almost sixty years of professional life, John Tusa has fought for and sometimes against the major arts and political institutions in the country. A distinguished journalist, broadcaster and leader of arts organisations, he has stood up publicly for the independence of the BBC, the need for public funding of the arts and for the integrity of universities. He has made enemies in the process. From the battles to create the ground-breaking Newsnight in 1979 to six years of defending the BBC World Service from political interference, Tusa's account is etched with candour. Often based on personal diaries, 'Making a Noise' is a fearless and entertaining memoir of life at the top of the arts and broadcasting
