John Humphrys struts his stuff with Daily Mail peacock tale | Media Monkey

guardian media - Mar, 03/06/2014 - 11:06

BBC Radio 4 presenter displays his sentimental side with tale of how he fell in love with a bird but ruffles some readers' feathers

John Humphrys is famed for his fierce interviewing technique, but the BBC Radio 4 presenter shows his sentimental side in a piece for Tuesday's Daily Mail. It recounts how the Today host "fell in love" with a peacock called Henry at his son's home in Greece. Among the highlights of the charming tale is Humphrys' description of how he and the peacock's owner tried to catch it by getting it drunk on corn soaked in ouzo. After the pair attempted to catch the swaying bird in a net, it flew to the top of a tree. He writes: "For a while we hung around at [the base of the tree], wondering how long before a paralytic peacock would fall off its perch like the dead parrot in the John Cleese sketch, then eventually gave up and went for a swim. Henry reappeared the following morning looking as jaunty as ever. Peacocks do not, it seems, suffer from hangovers." After the local fire brigade was recruited to catch the bird, Humphrys bought it from its owner: "He was, after all, part of the family and for the next five years amply repaid us with his magnificent displays, voracious appetite for the pesky cicadas and possibly the occasional poisonous snake, and his sociable nature." The tale prompts mixed reactions from Mail readers, with one proclaiming it "a story worthy of the great Gerald Durrell". Others are more critical: one comments grumpily "So John Humphrys has woodland, a lemon grove, and a mountainside. It obviously pays well to be an establishment propaganda stooge." Another bellows "Come on DM - even J.H. cannot claim this as being worthy front page news", which receives a withering response: "90% of what appears on the front page of the DM isn't worthy to be front page news. I'd rather read about John Humphry's peacock than Rihanna's daft frock."
