Over the last few years, authors and mates Barry Durdant-Hollamby & Neil del Strother have interviewed some of the world's leading movers and shakers on behalf of Merlin's Diary. These interviews now form an invaluable resource for free-thinkers and anthropologists across the globe, they are a spoken chronicle of man's continuing attempts to make the world a better place.
In an in-depth 40-50 minute session based around some simple questions which are used as dynamic jumping off points, Neil and Barry have helped to reveal deeper insights about the people who have, and are, making a real difference. This isn't just about what people do, it is essentially about understanding who they are.
From The Archbishop Desmond Tutu, to multi-million selling author and journalist Graham Hancock; from the elder statesman of Hawaiian Huna, Dr Serge King, to the man who walked in the name of peace from India to the USA in the early 60s with no money in his pockets, Satish Kumar; from Jo Berry, the woman who's father Sir Anthony Berry was blown up by the IRA in the Brighton Bombing, to Colin Parry, who's young son was killed by an IRA bomb in Warrington. Neil and Barry have interviewed a swathe of caring, fascinating and amazing people most of whom have met difficult times in their life and sought to grow from those experiences.
