Exceptional interview with Fisk

#1
This morning's Desert Island castaway was hack Robert Fisk, and he gave a bravura retrospect on his life as a war reporter, but more so his view of conflict itself. Including meetings with bin Laden and so on and so forth.

Particularly interesting was the influence of his father's experiences in WWI and subsequent severity as Fisk's unbending influence. Reminds me of my grandfather's attitude following the first war, btw.

Web link - not available on Listen Again but clearly an interesting figure nonetheless

Try and catch it if they repeat...
