9780980784848: Good Morning Hanoi: A Year On The Airwaves In The New Vietnam

When Iain Finlay and Trish Clark arrive in Hanoi on a one-year work assignment for the English language service of the communist government-run radio network, they can hardly foresee the intense and exceptional experiences that await them. Coming to Vietnam for an Australian aid agency, their intended role is to coach and instruct, or at least to share their knowledge, with a small group of young reporters. But they find that they learn more than they teach. As friendships with their colleagues grow, Iain and Trish are involved in developing and presenting a daily radio program - the first run by Westerners on a regular basis - and they become immersed in the stimulating life of one of Asia's most enchanting cities. In the process, they gain fascinating insights into Vietnamese society and culture, as well as a greater understanding and respect for the new Vietnam. Good Morning Hanoi also illuminates the lives of a group of people dwelling in crowded conditions around a small courtyard in central Hanoi where Iain and Trish find a house to rent, and who become like an extended family living in the heart of the city. In Good Morning Hanoi, Iain and Trish, two of the founders and producers of the international television program Beyond 2000, return to a country from which they had reported during the Vietnam War. They find an extraordinarily friendly people whose resilience and irrepressible good nature enable them to put the past behind them and move into the future with confidence.

About the Author:

Iain and Trish ...have been journalists, foreign correspondents, radio and TV producers and presenters, as well as authors, for some fifty years. They have written several fiction and non-fiction works separately. and five jointly-written non-fiction works. Co-founders of the internationally successful science program for television, Beyond 2000, they have travelled, lived and worked on every continent. In recent years they have also worked as volunteers with the Voice of Viet Nam radio network helping broadcasters there improve their English language programming. The two of them have recently embarked on the challenging task of wrenching back the ownership of all their titles, written solo or together and are having a deal of enjoyment in establishing an e-publishing company, by which they hope to make all their previously published and unpublished titles available to a wider public. They have shared life together since 1965, have children and grandchildren and, when not traveling, live in Australia on the far north coast of New South Wales.

Review:

'An intimate examination of modern-day Viet Nam and its rich culture.' --Abbey's Bookshop

'The hectic pace of life is vividly brought to life.'   
'Good Morning Hanoi should be required reading for anyone heading to Viet Nam for work or holidays.
An upbeat assessment of a people in an exciting phase of their history.' --The Hobart Mercury
