Trevor Fishlock was The Times staff correspondent in Wales in the 1970’s and later chief correspondent in India and New York. He was then Moscow bureau chief for The Daily Telegraph and as a roving writer he reported from over seventy countries. He has written books on Wales, India, America and Russia and was author of the National Library of Wales centenary volume. He has written and presented the television programme Fishlock’s Wild Tracks for fourteen years and continues to work on programmes on history and landscape in Wales. He has sailed twice across the north Atlantic and through the Roaring Forties from Cape Town to Melbourne and now lives in Cardiff.

His lecture will draw on his journalistic travels across the world and how as a foreign correspondent he explored the history and geography that shaped people and events. Sometimes following the trails of early writers, artists and photographers proved a rich source of inspiration. ‘Come back with words and pictures’ was the request.  Four centuries on, it is still the only rule.
