Edie on Radio 4 Midweek with Libby Purves

OK so this isn’t exactly ‘Latest News’ – the programme was in April 2012 – but I’ve just listened to it again and felt it deserved another airing.

You can hear me being interviewed about Edie’s diaries, along with Greg Doran and Sir Trevor McDonald, here. It’s worth hearing the whole programme but the section about Edie starts around 3 minutes and 10 seconds in.


It was a great pleasure for me being on the programme, partly because it all felt so deceptively relaxed; Libby made everyone feel at ease and she was so well prepared. Another highlight for me was meeting Trevor as he and I were born less than a mile apart in Trinidad, in 1939 and 1941 respectively.
