The most interesting people you come across in life are never the ones who are on TV or mainstream media. You meet them through a friend of a friend or get talking to them in a pub.

I want to spend some time with these people and find out what makes them tick. I think every different perspective helps as you try to make sense of life and that talking ...

The only psychiatrist in New Britain, Connecticut, collected 124 local stories of suicide from 1941 to 1948. Fifty years later, his grandson discovered them, studied them and researched the people in those stories, how they lived and what they left behind.

Oral histories of Myanmar - life stories; some starting as far back as the late 1920’s.From my years of involvement in Myanmar I have become aware of the increasing scarcity of the generation of Myanma citizens who were born during the colonial period and have lived through the tumultuous years since that time. For me, these men and women are "national treasures" whose experience, perseverance and wisdom gained during their long lives will be lost unless we capture their stories in some way. ...

Over the last 20 years as a military officer I’ve met rogues, renegades and eccentrics whose colourful characters have burned bright in some of the darkest places and situations imaginable. Throughout history these people arrive like duck billed platypuses waddling into a leopards only nightclub. They’re often loners, almost always disruptors and come with issues as big as their characters, but the bottom line is they embroider the fabric of our nation’s history with those quintessentially B ...
