'A wonderful man' - Graham Heslop remembered — Graham was a wonderful man: fun, compassionate, a brilliant cameraman and editor because he was a brilliant, instinctive journalist, a wonderful caring father and the stable anchor of every team. Like all our cameramen and women he worked his guts out, took enormous but calculated risks because he believed in what he was doing, and never stopped until the job was done.

The road to Qunu: a journey to Mandela's resting place — Following the Johannesburg memorial service and three days lying in state, on Saturday the body of Nelson Mandela will travel to Mvezo by air, and then on to Qunu, his birthplace and ancestral home.

Sri Lanka, 'impossible journalism' and Channel 4 News — Today, Sri Lanka's President Mahinda Rajapaksa closed what has been a controversial Chogm summit. The final communique avoided any mention of human rights - one of the central principles of the Commonwealth - instead agreeing to cooperate on a number of issues, including poverty reduction, trade and youth affairs.

Sri Lanka, 'Corrupted Journalism' and Channel 4 News — In the media pack given to all arriving journalists at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) being held in Sri Lanka next week is a 222 page book called " Corrupted Journalism". It is an out and out attack on Channel 4 and our journalism.
