Mick Perrin Productions presents Tony Robinson Worst Jobs in History
In TONY ROBINSON’S show you can ask him anything you like. He wants to tell you about his early life as a sickeningly precocious child actor in ‘OLIVER’, he wants to show you where BALDRICK’S boils came from, recount his meteoric rise from lefty leaflet distributor to member of Labour’s ruling NEC, and reveal the secrets of the groupies who knit Professor Mick Aston’s stripy jumpers.
But more than that TONY ROBINSON wants to talk about some of the Worst Jobs in History. He’s sick of telly programmes that show the Virgin Queen Elizabeth single-handedly transforming England in between snogging sessions with her latest court toy-boy. Most of our history is a million miles from that. It’s the story of ordinary people doing crappy jobs for crappy wages. The Gong Scourer, the Pipe Roll Transcriber and the Tosher have all got fascinating stories to tell. And now’s the time to tell them.
