"From Our Own Correspondent" Summary

"From Our Own Correspondent": First Forty Years by Tony Gordon

From Our Own Correspondent remains one of the most popular BBC radio programmes almost forty years after it first came out. Broadcast twice weekly on Radio 4 and internationally by the World Service, the programme draws on the talents of BBC correspondents around the world to bring to listeners reflections on major world events as well as more personal tales. Powerful eye-witness accounts of the stories that made the news over the past year, moving impressions of everyday life, and some highly comic moments: all are to be found in the fifth edition of The Best of From Our Own Correspondent. Included are: Fergal Keane on the elections in South Africa; Andy Kershaw on the tragedy of Rwanda; Martin Bell on the last days of Kim Il Sung; Gavin Esler on the trials and tribulations of Bill Clinton's presidency; Allan Little on the human suffering behind the war in Bosnia; Misha Glenny on Ukraine's nuclear arsenal; Kevin Connolly on Russia's latest revolution; Alex Brodie on the changing face of the Middle East; Brian Barron on the final days of Hong Kong under British rule; Martin Dowle on Brazil's World Cup team, and many more.
