In Briefest Encounters (published 2016), pianist, composer, publisher, ad-man, TV producer and businessman, Pip Burley, reflects upon some of the people he has met and worked with during a jack-of-all-trades career – including the stars of The Darling Buds of May and A Touch of Frost.

Mostly he describes these experiences with affection, embracing the inevitable highs and lows as all part of the illusory and sometimes duplicitous world of the media – and only occasionally dwelling on the odd unpleasantness he has met with from time to time.

As well as being a chronicle of some of the best-known celebrities of a generation, Briefest Encounters is a fascinating insight into the celebrity mindset and what it is like to be behind the scenes when the magic dust of showbusiness is being conjured up and sprinkled around.
