Day of the Flowers starring Carlos Acosta

BIO: Humphrey Hawksley’s face and voice are known to millions through his books and broadcasts. His work as a BBC foreign correspondent has taken him all over the world, and since Nine Eleven he has been reporting extensively on Islamic terror and intelligence issues from the United States, Iraq and elsewhere in the Middle East. Earlier, he was expelled from Sri Lanka for his uncompromising coverage on the Tamil separatist war, reported from the Philippines for NPR and opened the BBC’s first television bureau in China. He has been a contributor to ABC, CBS. NBC, the Financial Times, the International Herald Tribune and Yale Global online magazine. He divides his time between reporting assignments, London and Suffolk on Britain’s east coast, where he was born and raised, and is the wild and desolate setting for much Security Breach.
