Will the revolution be televised?
I've been blogging on the Telegraph website today about how those inside Zimbabwe see the situation there. In fact that explains partly the silence on this blog, I have been writing for the Telegraph's society blog, when not writing about Mme Sarkozy (senior).
However I've also been working hard on my research - am due to give a talk at the Red Cross and also perhaps at a conference in June which is very exciting. I came across Nalaka Gunawardene's new book on reporting disasters. I have spoken and emailed with Nalaka but missed out on seeing him in Sri Lanka last year - our schedules did not collide.
