Buy "Back Story" : Paperback Amazon: *******amzn.to/141PtG3 iBookstore: *******bit.ly/13L2LaA Audiobook (read by David Mitchell): *******bit.ly/YvdSzc David Mitchell introduces the oncoming weekly episodes filmed around London, where he reflects on some of the chapters in his book Back Story. Starting in Kilburn and stopping off in many areas he discusses in the book. David takes us on a personal journey recalling childhood memories and making general observations about his life. Catch the weekly episodes here on YouTube, on Facebook and through his Twitter page. Description of the Book David Mitchell, who you may know for his inappropriate anger on every TV panel show except Never Mind the Buzzcocks, his look of permanent discomfort on C4 sex comedy Peep Show, his online commenter-baiting in The Observer or just for wearing a stick-on moustache in That Mitchell and Webb Look, has written a book about his life. As well as giving a specific account of every single time he's scored some smack, this disgusting memoir also details: • the singular, pitbull-infested charm of the FRP ('Flat Roofed Pub') • the curious French habit of injecting everyone in the arse rather than the arm • why, by the time he got to Cambridge, he really, really needed a drink • the pain of being denied a childhood birthday party at McDonalds • the satisfaction of writing jokes about suicide • how doing quite a lot of walking around London helps with his sciatica • trying to pretend he isn't a total **** at Robert Webb's wedding • that he has fallen in love at LOT, but rarely done anything about it • why it would be worse to bump into Michael Palin than Hitler on holiday • that he's not David Mitchell the novelist. Despite what David Miliband might think Reviews Mitchell's trademark dry, intelligent humour translates well... If you like Mitchell on television, you will like him in this book. Shortlist David Mitchell's Back Story contains a string of observations that are as funny as they are thoughtfully composed. Metro Book Trailer VSEO by *******www.crimsonriverproductions****

The company plans to release the movie in time for consideration for awards season, with a wider release to follow in January 2010. According to a press release issued by the Weinstein Company that appears in full at Variety, the films full synopsis is: John Lennon is an ordinary fifteen year old boy on the streets of Liverpool. Funny, smart, naughty, a real edge to him. But life is not simple for John — he grew up in a family of secrets and was raised by his Aunt Mimi from the age of five. When he is suddenly reacquainted with his mother, Julia, they form an unbreakable bond. A bitter war rages between the two sisters for Johns love. Faced with bringing it to an end, he learns the secret heartbreak of his past. But his mother gives him one great gift — music. A wayward boy finds his voice, and walks into the Beatles. Nowhere Boy is just the latest in a long line of films that examine the Beatles and their music in some capacity. There was also Backbeat, the TV movie Two of Us, Across the Universe, I Am Sam, I Wanna Hold Your Hand and of course, A Hard Days Night and Help!.
