'Such experience, wisdom and education are unlikely ever again to combine in one journalist'

Mark Lawson

Alistair Cooke was radio's great observer, the doyen of foreign correspondents and the world's most famous letter writer From 1946 until 2004. he explained the Americans to the British through his weekly Letter From America, the longest-running one-man series In broadcasting history. It was always a virtuoso performance - informed, informal, shrewd, funny and erudite.

In this volume, Cooke reports on a varied selection of events, including the 1992 presidential election, the art of Charles Schulz and introducing Bernstein to Handel's Messiah. He remembers the infamous standoff over Cuba, which nearly caused a third world war, and recalls the more recent shocking events surrounding September 11th 2001 and the subsequent 'war on terror'. Every event evokes a particular time and place, but Cooke's unique style of expression and analysis provides each with a resonance that echoes through the years.

This release also contains a bonus programme. Remembering Alistair Cooke, in which BBC Radio 4 presenter James Naughtie and a selection of Cooke's friends, family and colleagues pay tribute to the great broadcaster

Any historian (amateur or serious) MUST have this collection. Anyone who loves the spoken word and who loves wordsmiths will also kill to get a copy. This is one reason how and why the BBC is so respected around the world.

Have you always loved reading but sometimes find it hard to find the time? Thereís nothing quite like curling up with a good book but many of us canít do that as much as weíd like. We sacrifice this special time because we have so many other things to do each day. Itís a common problem and itís the reason why people on average are not reading as much as they once did. Audio books bring the story to life just as the storytellers of the past did. They allow you to experience the book in a whole new way; in the way the writer felt and heard it in their head. You can feel the emotion when you allow audio books to let the story come to life.
