From Our Own Correspondent is a weekly BBC radio programme in which a number of BBC foreign correspondents deliver a sequence of short talks reflecting on current events and topical themes in the countries outside the UK in which they are based.[1] The programme offers the BBC's correspondents around the world a chance to give a personal account of events from the epoch-making to the inconsequential.

From Our Own Correspondent is broadcast in two editions – one on the BBC World Service and one on BBC Radio 4 – and the programme was one of the first to be made available by the BBC as a podcast.

The programme was first commissioned in 1955. A book entitled From Our Own Correspondent: A celebration of 50 years of the BBC Radio Programme[2] was published in 2005 with a selection of the show's reports for each continent.

Presenters[edit]

The programme was, for many years, presented by the Radio 4 and World Service announcers as part of their duties, but is now fronted by former BBC correspondents:
