Viewing History


Viewing History, published this week as an eBook, is an evocative eyewitness insight into some of the tempestuous global changes in recent times, by a former BBC Newsnight producer, Keith Bowers.

Keith also reveals the daunting and fascinating challenges faced by television producers on location, as they wrestle to broadcast their stories against the clock. The fall of the Berlin Wall, the collapse of communism in the Soviet Union, the death throes of apartheid in South Africa, these are just some of the dramatic international transformations witnessed by the author on his many travels. Based on vivid diaries, Keith's wry and engrossing observations provide unique and entertaining snapshots of how the modern world is evolving.

    1. I think you're right. As well as being a damn good read, they'd probably learn a lot from it.
