You know Alan Alda as an actor — most famously as Hawkeye Pierce in the classic TV comedy M*A*S*H — but now he’s making his debut as a professional playwright, and we’ve invited him on to break the news that the lead actress never goes out with the writer.
He’s also here to play a game called “You’re the Assistant Keeper of the Royal Privy.” We know a fair amount about the queen of England — for example, she is rarely amused — but we didn’t know much about the people who serve the British royal household … until now. A new book, Not In Front of the Corgis, details life behind the scenes in the monarchy. [Copyright 2011 National Public Radio]
