Former BBC and Sunday Times Moscow correspondent Angus Roxburgh looks at the legacy of communism and Russia’s place in the world today. He introduces his new book, Moscow Calling, a memoir of 45 years’ studying and working in Russia – a quirky, beautiful, tumultuous world that in forty years has changed completely, and yet not at all. From the dark, fearful days of communism and his adventures as a correspondent as the Soviet Union collapsed into chaos, to his frustrating work as a media consultant in Putin’s Kremlin, this is a unique, fascinating and often very funny insight into a country that today, more than ever, is of global political significance.
Angus will be interviewed by Steven Gale, experienced and popular interviewer and festival curator.
