Book description
Edited by Edward Stourton

Forewords by Nick Robinson & Martha KearneyWith an introduction by Sarah Sands, editor of the Today programme.


Today marks six decades of BBC Radio 4's Today programme with sixty world changing stories as they were broadcast. Covering war, rebellion and political transformation, to significant changes in culture, society, and the scientific world, the first ever book from the Today programme explores events as they happened, and how they changed the world around us.

From the fall of the Berlin Wall and the anti-apartheid movement to 9/11 and the Rise of Islamic State, from the Rushdie affair to the emergence of Brit Art and from space exploration to the tomorrow's world of artificial intelligence and machine learning.

In an era of fake news, echo chambers and new fault lines in global politics, millions of listeners turn to Today each morning for the latest headlines and to help them make sense of the world around them.

Chapters include:
Chapter 1: Rebellion, Revolution and Protest
Chapter 2: Britain's Political Landscape
Chapter 3: War, Conflict and Security
Chapter 4: Art, Culture and Sport
Chapter 5: Social Change
Chapter 6: The Natural World, Science and Technology



Today reflects six decades of the sound of history being made - live on air.Also available in Audio and Ebook.
