From Our Own Correspondent is a weekly BBCradio 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. 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 was published in 2005 with a selection of the show's reports for each continent.
