I Should Have Been at Work is the frank and opinionated story of the man behind the myth. Famously guarded about his private life, Des sets the record straight on all the stories that have been written about him, giving a unique view of life at the very top of his career – the personalities, the feuds, tragedies and glory.

One of the most accomplished broadcasters of his generation, Des Lynam has graced our screens for more than thirty years.At the BBC, Des covered World Cups and European Championships; many Wimbledons; seven Olympic Games, including the Israeli shootings in Munich; travelling the world; and following his hero Muhammad Ali to fights in Zaire, Malaysia and the USA.

Here he tells of the highs and the lows, the programmes he turned down – and the ones he wished he had! He also offers a candid account of life behind the scenes at the BBC – and of his five years at ITV, his reasons for going there and why his decision was justified but in other ways disastrous. This is the real Des: honest, warm, funny and brilliant – the man a whole nation has taken to heart.
