Radio 4 Today: A History of Our World Through 60 Years of Conversations and Controversies
Edited by Edward Stourton and with forewords by both Nick Robinson and Martha Kearney this book brings together a history of ourselves, our country and our world by covering 60 stories as they were broadcast. From the fall of the Berlin Wall and the anti-apartheid movement to the rise of Islamic State and the peak days of Brit Art.
The Today programme is of course the soundtrack to many people’s lives . . . the first voice that is heard in the morning, rousing us from sleep with news and coverage of what has happened in our sleeping hours.
The stories are told though direct extracts from the conversations or interviews broadcast at the time as well as commentary around those broadcasts.
