James Blatch is a former BBC Defence Reporter and a former BBFC Film Examiner.

As listeners will already know, James is writing his first book – called The Last Flight – a historical military thriller set in 1966.

James is fully immersed in military matters – he reported for the BBC on the UK military from, among other places, HMS Invincible, Kuwait and the Arctic Circle as well as covering the UK air offensive during the Kosovo Conflict in 1999.
