Moscow Calling - Angus Roxburgh
Have you ever wondered just what Vladimir Putin is really like? Or what it’s like dealing with those extreme temperatures? What happens if the KGB accuse you of spying for the West? And what really goes on under those furry hats? For 45 years, Angus Roxburgh has lived and breathed Russia. From translating Tolstoy to meeting three Russian Presidents (and working for one!), Angus has become one of Britain’s most authoritative voices on Russia. In this podcast, Angus is interviewed by Rob Brown about his time as a foreign correspondent in Russia for the Sunday Times and BBC News. He takes us through the trials and triumphs of working in a country so few of us really ever get to know.

Studying through grief: University and overcoming loss
It’s an unfortunate fact that every single one of us will experience the loss of someone we love in our lifetime. Losing someone dear is a tragic experience no matter what your age or stage of life you are at. However, dealing with loss as a young person can be a real struggle, especially when balancing this with university life and studies. As many young people have little exposure to bereavement, coming to terms with loss can be a difficult challenge as a student. University is meant to be a time for self-discovery and growing, but the process of coming to terms with grief can often be the biggest test of all. Amy Wall speaks to fellow Falmouth students, who have experienced loss, to find out how they have dealt with the challenges of grief while completing their university studies.
