If you've ever tuned in to BBC Radio 4 programmes such as The World Tonight and Newstand, or Newshour on the BBC World Service, the chances are you've listened to the sharp, sage reporting of Robin Lustig.

Many of those who weren't fortunate enough to be invited to the week's other big event – the inaugural ceremony in Washington – joined us on Thursday 19 January at Waterstones Piccadilly to celebrate the launch of Lustig's new memoir Is Anything Happening? My Life as a Newsman.

It's a fantastic book, both an irresistible personal memoir and an insightful reflection on world events over the past forty-five years. At Waterstones, Robin discussed his life and the state of the press with Rosie Goldsmith, and shared anecdotes from an illustrious career in broadcast journalism.
