Charles Wheeler: Edge of Frame

When veteran journalist Charles Wheeler died aged 85, he was just one year younger than the BBC itself. As the corporation's longest-serving foreign correspondent, Wheeler was at the forefront of world news reporting for more than 50 years. Showing again in a specially extended version as a tribute to Charles Wheeler, this documentary looks at the decisive moments of the latter 20th Century through the eyes of one of journalism's most dedicated, yet modest, professionals. Contributors include Jeremy Paxman, John Simpson and Wheeler's son-in-law Boris Johnson, as well as Charles Wheeler himself.
