Annual Book Review 2019
Featuring War Doctor: Surgery on the front line by David Nott, A Single Thread by Tracy Chevalier and Luminaries: 20 lives that illuminate the Christian way by Rowan Williams
Roy Jenkins and guests gather for the annual All Things Considered book review programme and introduce us to some astonishing people. There is the Welsh surgeon who’s risked his life in combat zones from Afghanistan to Congo, from Syria to Darfur, mending broken bodies and inspiring younger medics.
Also political reformers, one of the greatest novelists in the English language, and some of the most influential thinkers in the story of the Christian church. They’re not exactly in the studio with Roy, but - the next best thing - they feature in our annual pre-Christmas book review programme.
Joining Roy Jenkins are Dr Joanna Penberthy, Bishop of St Davids; George Craig, former civil servant and a regular voice with Weekend Word on Radio Wales Breakfast and historian Dr Elin Jones who among other things is Life President of the mental health charity Hafal.
