Our Next Event
Radio 4ís The World Tonight Voice, Robin Lustig will Discuss and Sign his memoir, Is Anything Happening? My Life as a Newsman
Tuesday 25 April 2017
“This memoir is everything you would expect from its author: intelligent, shrewd, witty, civilised and great company. He lifts the lid on life within BBC newsrooms and captures the fun of touring the world’s trouble spots. Along the way, he reminds us why serious journalism still matters.”
– Richard Sambrook, professor of journalism, Cardiff University, and former director, BBC News
In the days before mobile phones, the internet and 24-hour news channels, the easiest way for a British foreign correspondent to find out what was going on in the world was to phone the local office of Reuters news agency and ask: ‘Is anything happening? That's how veteran BBC reporter and presenter Robin Lustig started out in journalism, working for Reuters as an agency man. In the forty-five years since he began, he has watched the world of news change beyond recognition, as he reported on stories from every continent on the planet except Antarctica. Lustig describes growing up as the son of refugees from Nazi Germany, and retraces the journeys of his immigrant forebears to find the very spot where his grandmother was murdered by a Nazi death squad. After more than thirty years of reporting from and about the Middle East – including three years based in Jerusalem for The Observer – he reflects on the continuing conflict between Israelis and Palestinians and reaches a startling and controversial conclusion about the establishment of the state of Israel.
Robin Lustig is a British journalist and radio broadcaster. He started his career in journalism as foreign correspondent with the news agency Reuters, before moving onto The Observer for twelve years. He joined the BBC in 1989, presenting programmes such as The World Tonight, Newstand, Stop Press and File on 4 for Radio 4 and Newshour on the BBC World Service.
