THE MAKING OF MARBELLA
From a jet set paradise of the 50s and 60s through to becoming one of Europe’s best-known tourist resorts, Marbella has tranformed itself almost beyond recognition over the past 60 years. Journalist, broadcaster and long-term resident Giles Brown talks us through some of the ‘highs’ and ‘lows’ of this extraordinary town – from Prince Alfonso through Jesus Gil and even TOWIE – along with a spot of crystal ball gazing. And Giles promises not to mention Brexit. Well, apart from perhaps once or twice…
Giles Brown has been based in southern Spain for the past thirty years where he has worked as a journalist contributing to The Times, Daily Mail, The Mirror, Daily Star, BBC and Radio 5 Live, For the past five years, he has delighted listeners to the local radio station of Talk Radio Europe (TRE 91.9) with his wit and charm as well his knowledge and wide ranging tastes in music. His chairmanship of the popular Tuesday Morning discussion programme, “Viewpoint”, and his Sunday night “The Weekend Wind Down” with its mixture of chillout and classic popular music tracks should not be missed.
