In an era of fake news, echo chambers and new fault lines in global politics, millions of listeners turn to BBC Radio 4's Today programme each morning to help them make sense of the world around them.

The first ever book from the iconic programme marks sixdecades of BBC Radio 4's Today programme with sixty world changing stories as they were broadcast. Covering war, rebellion and political transformation, to significant changes in culture, society, and the scientific world, the book explores events as they happened, and how they changed the world around us.

From the fall of the Berlin Wall and the anti-apartheid movement to 9/11 and the Rise of Islamic State, from the Rushdie affair to the emergence of Brit Art and from space exploration to the tomorrow's world of artificial intelligence and machine learning. Key figures within the book include Harold Wilson, Margaret Thatcher, Stephen Hawking, Tracey Emin and Barack Obama.

Chapters include:
Chapter 1: Rebellion, Revolution and Protest
Chapter 2: Britain's Political Landscape
Chapter 3: War, Conflict and Security
Chapter 4: Art, Culture and Sport
Chapter 5: Social Change
Chapter 6: The Natural World, Science and Technology

Also available in Audio and Ebook.

Edited by Edward Stourton
Forewords by Nick Robinson & Martha Kearney
With an introduction by Sarah Sands, editor of the Today programme.

Seems a bit of a bargain compared to the hardback price of £17.49 as it was only released in September this year.

All very nicely situated within the Overton Window. I'll give it a miss.

Meh. Isn't that sort of the point of Today? Refusing to stray inside Overton is just as much a betrayal as refusing to stray outside it. I don't have a problem with something that does well what it sets out to do.

Anyway, no reviews of this anywhere? Looks like it's most useful as a way to career across various subjects so you can read further on ones that take your fancy.

I don't understand your assertion.
