Peter Godwin talks to Michael Buerk

Mukiwa

Hay Festival 1996, 
Godwin's account of his relationship with Zimbabwe is one of the year's most exciting biographical books. Seen through the eyes of a child, Rhodesia is a magical land of leopard hunting, lepers, witch doctors, snakes and forest fires. But through the eyes of an adolescent, a conscripted boy soldier caught in the middle of a vicious civil war, and finally an adult who returned to Zimbabwe as The Sunday Times Correspondent to cover the bloody transition to majority black rule, it became a land stalked by violence, death and danger.
He talks to BBC's Michael Buerk, presenter of The Moral Maze and 999 who reported from Africa for many years, and whose coverage of the Ethiopian Famine prompted Bob Geldof to start Live Aid.
