THE FIRST BOOK FROM THE MOST INFLUENTIAL NEWS PROGRAMME IN BRITAIN, THE TODAY PROGRAMME.

"This book is about sixty years of memory - a history of ourselves, our country and the world" Sarah Sands, editor of the programme

Best of Today marks the 60-year anniversary of BBC Radio 4's Today programme as told in 60 world-changing events that have been broadcast on the show, from wars, conflicts and shifts in the political landscape to changes in social roles, culture, science and technology.

The first ever book from the Today programme takes an original approach to our nation's history, exploring the events as they happened and the outcomes that have gone on to transform our modern age. From the Fall of the Berlin Wall; the Falklands War; the Anti-Apartheid Movement and the Rise of Islamic State to Gay Rights Activism; the Pill and the Sexual Revolution; the Salman Rushdie Affair; the Emergence of Brit Art; Engineering the Channel Tunnel; Stephen Hawking's Black Hole Paradox & Peter Higgs' 'God Particle' and Tomorrow's World of AI and Machine Learning.

Today is much more than a daily news and current affairs radio programme - it's a perennial British staple, and the Best of Today is a ground-breaking reflection of the history of our nation as it unfolded live on air.
