John Simpson talks about his new book Days from a Different World in which he describes his early childhood in post-war Britain.

He tells Jenni about the choice he had to make at the age of 6, when he was asked whether he wanted to live with his mother or father, the repercussions of that decision, his relationship with the journalist Martha Gellhorn and how he views fatherhood at the age of 61. 
Days from a different world - a memoir of childhood by John Simpson, published by MacMillan - ISBN: 1 4050 5004 7
