Fergal Keane with Allan Little: The Scars of War Reporting

‘The suffering of others was my daily bread.’ This brutally honest, heartfelt assessment of the job of a war reporter is central to Fergal Keane’s memoir, The Madness: a riveting account of how he survived war, fear, and PTSD, against a backdrop of alcoholism and a troubled Irish history. Keane talks with fellow BBC reporter, Allan Little, about the importance of bearing witness and what drives foreign correspondents to risk their lives on the frontline.
