Fantom Publishing Book Launch

Be the first to get your hands on Charles Chilton's autobiography Auntie's Charlie


Auntie's Charlie discusses his life from growing up on the streets of 1920s St. Pancras, to early years at the BBC working for the Gramophone Library to writing the infamous production Oh What A Lovely War for the Theatre Workshop at Stratford East.

While with the BBC Charles Chilton was then sent to the United States to research, write and produce a number of series based on American western history. One of these, Riders of the Range, lasted for five years until 1953.


However, major international recognition came with his science fiction trilogy Journey Into Space which he wrote and produced between 1953 and 1959. His interest in space travel also led him to join the British Interplanetary Society. He was presented with an MBE for his services to the radio by the Queen Mother (the Queen was abroad at the time) in 1976, a year before retiring from the BBC after 46 years.


This two hour event, will feature a stage panel with Charles and an opportunity to meet him afterwards.



If you pre-order either Journey into Space or Auntie's Charlie before the 15th August you will receive an exclusive invite to the Charles Chilton book launch where you will personally receive your copy and have it personally signed by Charles.
