The novels and stories which tell us of the mad adventures of foolish Bertie Wooster, who so often needs rescuing by his inimitable and sagacious valet Jeeves, are some of the most widely read humorous works of the 20th century.
Get to know Pelham Grenville Wodehouse, the man behind the characters, and find out how he upset the whole of Britain in 1941 and how he responded to the shock he caused.
The first story featuring Jeeves and Wooster came out in 1915, but it was in the 1930s and 40s that the characters reached their peak as comic creations. What is the secret of their charm and why, in our stressful Covid world, do we still need to sink with pleasure into the wonderful world of Jeeves and Wooster?
