William Hill Sports Book of the Year, Simon Callow, Michael Oglesby

Simon Callow discusses Orson Welles: One Man Band, the third volume in his exploration of the life and work of one of cinema's greatest mavericks. This week Front Row talks to leading arts philanthropists; today to Michael Oglesby, founder of the Bruntwood Group. A survivor's account of the Bradford stadium fire, and a controversial boxing match that left one fighter dead are the subjects of two of the six books on this year's William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award. Samira hears from all the shortlisted authors at the awards ceremony, and reveals the winner of the 2015 prize. Shortlisted books: Speed Kings by Andy Bull Living on the Volcano: The Secrets of Surviving as a Football Manager by Michael Calvin Fifty-Six: The Story of the Bradford Fire by Martin Fletcher The Game of Our Lives: The Meaning and Making of English Football by David Goldblatt Fire in Babylon: How a West Indies Cricket Team Brought a People to its Feet by Simon Lister A Man's World: The Double Life of Emile Griffith by Donald McRae Presenter: Samira Ahmed Producer: Rebecca Armstrong.…read more
