I thought I’d read that Keith Graves had retired, but he has turned up in Basra. Has he been on a writing sabbatical?
was his package/live today?, 13th or yesterday? I love Keith. !
erm, afaik from others here – he semi retired a few years back, built a nice place in Greece (from memory) but comes back occasionally.. the last time (i think) was for the 2004 US. Prez elections.
He’s a very good correspondent, can talk the hind legs off a donkey & was even quite controversial.. but only because he’s quite blunt & tells it like it is.
I know Lindsay Hilsum is/was in Basra recently, last few days – so maybe there was a chance of an embedding & sky for lots of reasons, didnt have anyone else available.
Cyprus I believe.
Keith is deffo an a top notch Foreign Correspondent. Whenever he speaks I’m listening, he has an air of authority.
I remember Keith was in Washington on Sep 11th.
He seems to be able to pick & choose what he does these days. Seems to do more reflective pieces. Wasn’t he is Afganistan a while ago?
I agree that he is one of the very best tv journalists on British tv in the last 30 years.
My father hates him – yet I think he is an outstanding journalist. I hope that we do see much more of him. He has authority and clearly knows whats he talking about.
