For good or ill, after 32 years serving on the frontline of radio news presentation for the Today programme, John Humphrys has become an emblem of BBC journalism. One of the corporation’s journalistic attack dogs, he has been the interviewer that political leaders, notably Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn, are keenest to dodge. This week, Humphrys is finally to bow out in the company of a former prime minister. David Cameron will brave an interview on the eve of the publication of his memoir – and it promises to be a vintage encounter. The avowedly impartial BBC, which Humphrys joined in 1966, regularly deploys the defence that it must be doing something right because it is equally unpopular with Remainers and Brexiters, with one-nation Tories and radical socialists, and with feminist activists and reactionary misogynists.

I chuckled. 'Not even this Aussie team could lose the first three games at home.' It's a family affair: Piers with sons Stanley, Bertie and Spencer at the Sydney Opera House Thus emboldened, I splashed out a sum of money approaching the national debt of Estonia to book us all flights from various parts of the world (me direct on Qantas from Los Angeles, my sons and youngest … [Read more...] about Oz at its bouncing best: England’s cricket team (and Piers Morgan’s ribs) take a pasting Down Under
Rochelle, Marvin and baby Alaia-Mai just can't get enough... of the Maldives! By Rochelle Humes Published: 17:51 BST, 1 February 2014 | Updated: 18:07 BST, 1 February 2014 e-mail 234 shares 8 View The Maldives have been the beautiful backdrop to the most special times of my life – so it should be no surprise to learn that they've become the No 1 holiday destination for me and my husband, Marvin. We first came here at the end of 2011 – and got engaged. We loved it, and after we were married, there was only one choice for the honeymoon. We returned at the end of 2012 as Mr and Mrs Humes. Then, at the end of last year, we were back again, and this time as a trio, with our seven-month-old daughter Alaia-Mai. So what is it we like so much about the Maldives that has attracted us three times in three years?
