Boat in GreeceTwenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didnt do than by the things you did do. So throw off the bow lines, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

What I'm reading now

From Our Own Correspondent

"From Our Own Correspondent" has been one of BBC Radio 4's flagship programmes for fifty years. And this book, containing dispatches from all around the world, shows why "FOOC", as it is affectionately known, has become such a well-known and much-loved institution. It contains not only the observations of journalists covering the big news events of the day, but also their personal insights into how people around the world live their lives. There are dispatches from Misha Glenny in Russia, Mark Tully in India, Charles Wheeler in the USA, Jeremy Vine in the Congo, Ben Brown in Zimbabwe and Orla Guerin in the West Bank. All offer a unique perspective describing the background to events around the world as they happen.
