Keeping on

I have readers who will be anxious about a new BBC role for the The World's Greatest Living Foreign Correspondent, John Simpson. 

In puffing his latest novel, he tells The Telegraph he's got "a new on-screen role just agreed with a BBC News management team". 

‘I can’t go into the plans,’ he enthuses, ‘but I am about to enter a new exciting phase with the BBC. It’s about foreign affairs but in a more structured form.’

If the details are vague, his commitment is plainly stated. ‘If I can do it, I should like to stay with the BBC until 2026, when I will have been working for it for 60 years.’
