Edward Stourton As a young journalist, Edward Stourton reported first from party conferences and picket lines and then from war zones, witnessing the events making international headlines, from Haiti to Hong Kong, before returning home to join the infighting on BBC Radio 4's Today. During this time, the world has changed, and so has Ed. Brought face to face with the author of his obituary and his own inevitable mortality, he reflects on the life he has led and the events that have shaped him with candour, humour and insight.
