Believe It!
BBC Radio 4 Extra
Thursday 11th February, 11.00pm GMT
Richard Wilson narrates his fictional autobiography, based on glimmers of truth. Why does Richard Wilson get drunk every November 25? For the first time, he tells the naked truth.

Celebrity autobiographies are everywhere. Richard Wilson has always said he'd never write one.
Based on glimmers of truth, BELIEVE IT is the hilarious, bizarre, revealing (and, most importantly, untrue) celebrity radiography of Richard Wilson.
He narrates the series, weaving in and out of dramatised scenes from his fictional life-story. He plays a heavily exaggerated version of himself: a Scots actor and national treasure, unmarried, private, passionate about politics, theatre and Manchester United (all true), who's a confidant of the powerful and has survived childhood poverty, a drunken father, years of fruitless grind, too much success, monstrosity, addiction, charity work, secret work for governments and fierce rivalry with Sean Connery (not true). All the melodramatic staples of celebrity-autobiography are wonderfully undercut by Richard's deadpan delivery.

Believe It! is produced by Clive Brill of Pacificus Productions for BBC Radio 4.


Episode 2 airs at the same time on February 18th.
