Alan Johnston is to tell the story of his kidnap ordeal in two special BBC programmes on 25 October 2007.
An hour-long Panorama special on BBC One will feature an extended Jeremy Vine interview and in From Our Own Correspondent, on BBC Radio 4 and BBC World Service, Alan will tell his story in his own words.
Alan, former BBC Gaza Correspondent, spent 114 days in captivity after being abducted at gunpoint by militants on 12 March in Gaza City earlier this year.
Panorama will feature reports from the Middle East, the US and the UK as well as interviews with those involved in the efforts to free Alan.
In From Our Own Correspondent, listeners will hear Alan make a return to the programme to tell his story in detail.
