George Bramwell Evens, known as Romany, was the first BBC naturalist. He delighted in observing wildlife with his dog, Raq, and his friends, and sharing his observations with the British public. Journalist Terry Waite, a longtime fan who is president and a founding member of the Romany Society, reads Romany's anecdotes with the joy shown by the author. His fascination with Romany's tales is made clear to listeners. The comparison of a bird's movements to an airplane's flight, for example, is read with breathless excitement. This glimpse of the natural life of the English countryside will entertain listeners who have followed the adventures of veterinarian James Herriot. J.A.S.
