"7. Daddy, my daddy. Is it Jenny agita? Any chance? No. And if that was your answer, it I'm afraid that is Sally. The next thing I was going to say. Sally Thompson. Sally Thompson on lotte Burke, the German physical instructress. And her album get physical from 1982. Translated into English enunciated perfectly by saying, so there's only one question left, but there are three points up for grabs. So you could still do it dumb crumbs. And butter and jam, you have to fiercely protect your competitive advantage at this point. We are going to hear three different audiobooks of the railway children. All you have to do, Nikki don't play it yet. All you have to do is name the three readers. But to make it more interesting, Steve Reich style, we're going to listen to them all soon. They will not be able to generate that ordinary dense pose they have ever lived with their fathers and accepts a new record. Alberto was the Eldon. And then the youngest. And Cold War told her. Electric bells, French women who went well and a good deal of white paint. Every modern convenience as the house agency. Now obviously they don't sink because they read at different speeds and also the texts all three texts are different because they're different edited versions. Now, the way we're going to do this is we're going to I'm going to ask you each team to name one at a time, okay? So I'm going to go to you dumb cremes first. Can you name one of those readers? One is Jenny a good fit. No, no, no, it's okay, because I'm going to assume butter and jam got that, didn't you? Yeah, obviously. Yeah. Okay, so we both got well done. You both got that one. And now I'm going to ask butter and jam to name a second reader. Can we confirm? Yes. By all means confirm now. I don't know. No, I don't know who it is. I don't know who read the one. I always listened to, and I was little. He's the male. Josh ackland. Ah, that's happened. So I'm going to throw it over to you for the second guess. Dumb crumbs. Is the man Martin Jarvis or Stephen so it's not modern Jarvis? Steven thorn. That was a good guess because Martin Jarvis does do all audiobooks. No, it's not. It's not melting. Stephen Fry, it's not. It's not steaming fry. All right. So it's not even customers. You're getting warmer. Michael kitchen, jam, you're getting warmer, no, not Michael kitchen. We've got to give butter and jam there. So butter and jam. Good Nicki. Is the woman who the other woman is she the mom in. Yes. So who is that? The mom in the film. Diana shows. He's dying to share in butter and well done. Now, so that means I have to ask dumb crumbs. Who is the male's voice? And I will give you a clue. It's related to the film as well. And you've already heard him once today. It's not Bernard cribbins. No. Dumb crumbs to who? Yes, who is reading right at the very beginning, John, who was that? Yes. Who was that? He was reading right at the very beginning. This is going to drive me mad. Well, it is Christmas. Anyone? Anyone wanna guess? Jeffries? It was Lionel Jefferson. Right. What? 12. So the three readers there were Jenny agata. Dinah Sheridan and Lionel. Dina Sheridan and Lionel Jeffrey and she and Diana Sheridan is the voice that I grew up with. It's the idea that Nikki, I guessed it was when you said to us the other day it was somebody very well spoken. Okay, so in runners up the place. Catherine and John the dumb cranberry scored a very respectable 6, but our winners run away. 2021, with 11 points. And jam. Well done. Well done. You win a honeycomb. And a shovel. Peppermint comfort. So before we wrap up, is there anything Catherine you would like to say about Nesbit or the railway children that you feel we haven't touched on or you feel is important to say about her here in the 21st century? I don't think so. Only that, without her, we wouldn't have Frank cultural voice. That's so true. And without her, we wouldn't have any of the trudy truly great children's writers who were writing right now. She made it possible for those who followed on. And it's amazing to listen to you both speak about her in an inspiration in the way that you do. Frank is there anything you want to add about her or about the railway children? Just thank you, you know, I think she was astonishing. I think she's underestimated. I'm so glad to have had this opportunity to talk about their influences extraordinary. I think when you read you just think, this is so many ways to tell a story that you haven't thought about. And that's true. Catherine of children writers of my generation, but it's also true of me across the making.

"Today you find us somewhere in northern England in 1905 sitting high above a railway line below as the black yawning mouth of a tunnel at the end of a valley that runs a great bridge with tall arches. We are waiting to weigh that a green steam train, the 9 15 up, the one we call the green dragon, the one that carries an old gentleman with odd shaped collars and a top hat that isn't exactly like other people's who always waves back. I'm John mitchinson, the publisher of unbound, the platform where readers crowdfund books they really want to read. And I'm Andy Miller author of the year of reading dangerously and joining us for this special Christmas Day episode. Like family members from far away. Who we see once or twice a year? Two returning guests Katherine rundell and Frank cultural boys. Hey, Merry Christmas. And they both joined us in April to discuss tristram shandy and it was after that digression filmed romp that Catherine said, oh, if you ever want me to come back on again and I'd love to do the railway children and we went come back at Christmas. Come back immediately. So thank you very much, Katherine, what a brilliant idea and we've been excited all the air. Let me introduce and ask both our dear guests for their first festive contributions of the day. Katherine rundell is the author of half a dozen children's books among them rooftoppers and the explorer all published by Bloomsbury and a fellow of all souls college in Oxford where she has just finished the book about John Dunn, congratulations that she's been writing for the last thousand 86 years. It's called super infinite and everybody save a book token because it's coming out in April. Thank you so much. You're welcome. You're welcome. You're welcome. That's the kind of product placement we can do on here. Catherine. Here's a cracker sound effective pulling a cracker. What appropriate joke has just fallen onto the table from the apologize in advance? Which enes but novel features the murderous destruction of 5 children by a killer clown. I'm really sorry. That's just I'm gonna love this. It's something I need. 5 children didn't it. Very good. Thank you very much. Catherine, thank you. Turning now to our other get the eccentric uncle slough for slumped in the corner. Hello, Frank Cochran. He's an award winning novelist and screenwriter, as well as joining Catherine for the shandy fest further first appeared on back listed number 79 to discuss two of their Jensen's moomin valley in November. His bestselling children's books include millions, which won the 2004 Carnegie medal, Sputnik's guide to life on earth, 2016, shortlisted for the Carnegie, and most recently Noah's gold, all illustrated by Steven Linton and published by macmillan. Frank wishes us to know that he is, quote, erudite wall and enthusiast. That's so rude. Well, you said it, Frank. And those are all qualities that make him eminently qualified to appear on this backlist to Christmas special. And also to share with us, sprang do you have a cheering festive motto that's falling out of your imaginary cracker forest today? Yes. Do you wonder who delivers Mary and Joseph's groceries to the stable? I do. It's the little dunk. That's very good. I'm also joined today by the green man himself John mitchenson. And our producing Nikki Butch, who is part of the team here, we're all gathered around the Christmas table. They've also got crackers. They've also pulled their crackers. Nikki burch. What joke do you have for us? Okay, so which Christmas song is a family favorite of the railway children? Freight Christmas. It's good, but it's not what I've got on my technique. Okay, okay. It's Phyllis never dad. Nice. That is brilliant. Right, michelson. I know you've prepared a whole side of a four of potential candidates. I'm just going to give you that favorite one. Why? Why backlift listeners did Andy Miller give the kiss of life to an elderly male reindeer? My private life, my private life is none of your business. Go on, John. He was breathing new life into an old book. See ya. Oh, is that your best one? Yeah, I think that's great. It's got to be crap, right? Well, that was magnificent. I already feel we're recorded this in July. The gelatin is flowing through me like heroin. It's amazing. Thank you very much. No, I was too busy doing the quiz. There's a quiz everybody. There's a quiz later on. That's exciting. So if you hadn't already guessed because we've already told you, so you pay attention. The old book we're coaxing fresh and festive life from today is the railway children by E Nesbit first serialized in 1905 in the London magazine and published in book form the following year by wells Gardner darton and co. It's remained in print ever since. The rower children has been adapted many times for radio and the stage and at least 6 times for the screen with many though not all the adaptations featuring Jenny agata. If ever a book needed no introduction, it is this one. So we're not going to give it one. I'm hoping every single person listening to this. It doesn't need spoiler warnings or anything like that. You've had you've had a 115 years and multiple Christmas TV viewings to be up to speed for this one. So it should be fine. But before we get onto the railway children, John, what have you been reading this Christmas? I've been raising an old favorite and an old classic. It's hobby dick by the great folklorist Catherine Briggs KM Briggs. It was published first in 1955. And it is about a kind of a Supernatural hobgoblin figure called hobby dick, who is the tutelary spirit of a house called whitford manner in the Cotswolds. And he is watching on glumly as a family of Puritans move in, it's set in the middle of the shortly after the Civil War. At the time of when Christmas was under threat or even banned. And it's about how he with his band of ghosts and grims and will of the wisps and sprites. Managed to turn this rather duo puritan family into something very different. And I thought I'd just read you a little bit about the Christmas, what's happening is that all the people who want to celebrate Christmas are having to do it in a barn and they've had to do it. They're trying to do it as far away from the big house so that nobody knows their Christmas revels are banned. So there must be more than a score of people in the room for convivial laborers had come from the farms round, where a stricter supervision had been kept. Martha, diligence, little Samuel, Ned the house boy, charity, and half a dozen others were playing at hot cockles. Rachel, Maria parminter and Nancy, the oldest of the maids were roasting chestnuts and crab apples, crab apples. The butler, Jonathan Fletcher, a grave silent man, was brewing a bowl of lambs wool in which the crabs were afloat. A group of lads at the far end of the room were improvising clothes for the mumming play. George batford, with a cushion on his head to mark his rank as king of the revels, was directing everyone his usual bloomy and impassive face aglow with good humor and the nipsey had taken to quicken his spirits..
