Letter to Daniel from Fergal Keane: Hong Kong 1996

Letter to Daniel was written by BBC correspondent Fergal Keane to his newborn son back in 1997. The letter combines the memories of a man in his role as a foreign correspondent, then working in Hong Kong, with the reflections of a recent father.

It became a radio classic, and produced one of the most phenomenal responses from listeners in the programme’s history.
