A popular speaker, Helen has spoken at several literary festivals and is a regular guest on cruise ships.
She has appeared on television, most recently in an episode of Who Do You Think You Are? She has advised on many TV programmes including David Dimbleby's Britain and the Sea.
Today I will be interviewing John Willis about his book Churchill's Few. Robin Ellis, the actor best known for his part as the original Ross Poldark, will be reading extracts from the book.
The book is based on interviews with six men who fought in the Battle of Britain. My father, Bob Doe, is one of them. The others are another pilot officer who was very badly burned, a sergeant pilot, a Polish pilot, an intelligence officer and a Luftwaffe pilot. They each bring a different perspective to the Battle.
