Martin Bell: A Front Row Seat At The Making Of History
“I liked the idea of having a front-row seat at the making of history. I felt myself move into another gear when I hit a war zone. And sometimes be not a terribly nice person.”
Martin Bell – “the man in the white suit” – is a British institution. Just as Walter Cronkite was “the most trusted man in America”, so Martin Bell represents journalistic integrity and straight-talking to several generations of Britons.
In this extended show, we talk to Martin about his life, his war experiences, the experience of being a politician, and… his poetry! It’s a treat – don’t miss it.
Martin’s book of light and dark verse, For Whom The Bell Tolls, has just been published.
