Oggy Boytchev, journalist and author of Simpson & I, opens Felixstowe Book Festival with a talk about what it’s like to work as a journalist in the most dangerous places on earth. With astonishing revelations about how stories are discovered and reported, he shares with us the often nail-biting, sometimes touch-and-go moments behind the camera, as well as the skill and courage it takes to break the news we all watch while safely tucked up at home.
Oggy will be illustrating his talk with two short films: a fly-on-the wall report about how his team operates in Baghdad, and a heart-breaking human interest story about the sectarian divide in the Middle East.
