A life fully lived from a much-loved Australian told with all the Bowden wit and charm.

Tim Bowden draws you into his eager, enthusiastic world peopled with a Cecil B. de Mille cast of thousands and you want to share all the good and bad that happens to him.' - Maeve Binchy

Delightfully engaging ' Christopher Bantick, Canberra Times

A wonderful rollick across half a century of Australian life.' ? Alan Ramsey, Sydney Morning Herald

Tim Bowden has never been guilty of taking himself too seriously. From playing tunes on his teeth live on national radio to his days on the ground-breaking This Day Tonight and his regular encounters with Mavis Frizzletit on the much loved Backchat, he has lived by the golden rule of broadcasting thou shalt not bore.

In this cheeky, larrikin and gloriously irreverent memoir, Tim Bowden spins the yarn of his life. Just how did the eager young cadet journalist from Tasmania take on the world to become a foreign correspondent in Southeast Asia and North America and one of the ABC's most distinguished television and radio producers?

Spooling Through has it all: romance, high adventure and a wonderfully eccentric cast of characters, but most of all it has Tim Bowden's wry, infectious humour. He will, of course, leave you wanting more.
