Journalism in Russia; remembering Anna Politkovskaya

I first went to Russia as a TV producer in the summer of 1991; my last assignment there was finishing a posting as BBC Moscow correspondent in the Spring of 2009.

Earlier this year, I wrote a chapter on journalism in post-Soviet Russia. The book in which it is to appear is due to be published next year. I’ll be giving a version of the chapter as a talk at a conference in Prague next month. Last night, I was invited onto BBC World News to talk about journalism in Russia today and, on the anniversary of her murder, to talk about the times I met Anna Politkovskaya.
