    Simon Winchester's Pacific tales

    Simon Winchester's Pacific tales


    Friday 19 February 2016 ABC [Australia] from................."Conversations with Richard Fidler"

    Richard Fidler covers an wide spectrum of topics with his various guests...............this is just one of many.


    Simon is an acclaimed author of many books which follow the trail of his intense curiosity, including The Surgeon of Crowthorne, and The Map That Changed the World.

    He's now followed up his biography of the Atlantic Ocean by turning his attention and curiosity to the Pacific.

    The vast ocean is by far the world's biggest body of water, the most biologically diverse and the most seismically active.



    Among the true stories Simon's collected, are the strange story of the man who authorised the Bikini Atoll tests

    The full article, plus link to the podcast may be downloaded at the link below.............the discussion about the "Bikini" Nuclear Test is particularly informative..............however the full broadcast is worth the time [maximum 1 hour] to listen too.


    Further information

    Pacific: The Ocean Of The Future is published by Harper Collins.
