Today we have something particularly special on the pod, in the form of George Alagiah’s 2019 Noirwich Lecture.
George is of course best known for his journalistic work with the BBC, in particular as presenter of BBC News at Six. He’s just released his first work of fiction, The Burning Land, and in his lecture he talks about the power of fiction to better illuminate facts, and how the book complements the factual work he’s done as a journalist throughout his career.
Hosted by Simon Jones.
Music by Bennet Maples.
