We Chose to Speak of War and Strife: The World of the Foreign Correspondent
John Simpson is the most distinguished foreign correspondent of our time and here, in conversation with award-winning news presenter Alastair Stewart, he gives us a fascinating history of what it is to risk life and limb to bring home news of the troubled world beyond our shores.

Weaving the history of the greats who went before him, such as Hemingway and Martha Gellhorn, with extraordinary accounts from his own lifetime on the frontlines, John reveals the dangers, excitement and glamour of his work.
John Simpson is the BBC’s World Affairs Editor.
