    "Spies, Lies And Exile" by Simon Kuper: A book review.

    If you are interested in spy thrillers, you will like this true story of George Blake, the Soviet double agent during the days of the Cold War. He worked for the SIS, Britain's Secret Intelligence Service, more commonly known as MI 6, but at the same time spied for the Russians. 

    " Spies, Lies, And Exile" by Simon Kuper is the life story of George Blake, who at one time, was considered the most effective of the Soviet double agents as he was the least suspected.

    Book Review of "Master Your Core" by Dr Bohdanna Zazulak

    Book Review of "Master Your Core" by Dr Bohdanna Zazulak

    Dr Zazulak's book, published by TCK Publishing, has been described as a science-based guide to achieve peak performance and resilience to injury. The author shares her Core BASE, an integrative, holistic guide for breathing, awareness, stability, and empowerment of your core in body, mind, and spirit.
    Broadly speaking, on one hand we have the Western view of fitness through the study of modern science and medicine. On the other we have the age old Oriental take on keeping well through a mix of exercise and meditation. In my view, the best part of Dr Zazulak ‘s book is her creative use of the best of both worlds.

    Poets of the First World War

    Poets of the First World War

    Many famous British poets emerged during the First World War, such as Owen, Sassoon, Brooke, Yeats, and Hardy. Their poems captured the glories of battles and the horrors of war especially in the trenches.
    Chunks of some of these poems remain in my mind though I studied them over 50 years ago. 
    This episode is dedicated to them and to my teachers at The Lawrence School, Lovedale for instilling in me a life long interest in literature and history.

    A poignant story written by a father about a daughter who passed away too soon. Could things have turned out differently? How much do we know about what our children are going through? Can this be happening right now to someone you know? Or to others, you don't!
