Foreign Correspondents

Listen to Foreign Correspondents

In the age of fast news, few resources and global technology, are foreign correspondents becoming redundant – or are they a vital investment in properly bearing witness? Three esteemed former foreign correspondents reveal experiences from the front, sharing on-the-job tales, stories of the long-term effects of the role, and a look at how it’s evolved over the years … from the days before email and mobile phones.

Take the long view with former Age foreign editor Cameron Forbes, Tony Clifton (ex Newsweek and Sunday Times) and Mike Keats, who has 50 years of experience as a foreign correspondent and editor. Hosted by Eleanor Hall.
