Customer Reviews

Outstanding

'From Our Own Correspondant' is unique in its style of broadcasting. The BBC, under its charter is obliged to provide a balanced newspiece, and therefore the amount of journalistic license allowed is restricted on ordinary news reports. FOOC is designed to allow journalists to say exactly what they think about the people, places and events in the news - and the programme provides the listener with a unique insight into the real situation. The journalists features are some of the most respected in the world, including World Affairs Editor John Simpson and Middle East Corresponent Orla Guerin.

Why radio was invented

FOOC is essential listening for anyone who has dreamed of travelling to far away lands, or learning new things about countries they think they know, or just harbours a sense of curiousity about the world around us. While the world is certainly getting smaller, FOOC often reminds me of how little I really know about our little planet.

Sensible listening

I have always been a fan of FOOC, from the first time I accidentally heard it one Saturday morning. Hosted by Kate Adie but presented by a seemingly endless list of intelligent people who really know the areas of the world they live in. They do not always present the big picture, as main news channels might but the more personal, detailed view. This should be listened to by more people with a desire to expand their minds. Long may it continue, it is excellent.
