Biography & Memoir
BBC correspondent Laura Trevelyan talks about her account of the unique Trevelyan family. The Trevelyan’s, of whom she is a descendant, dedicated themselves to the service and chronicling of Britain over several generations. They included the radical, reforming civil servant Charles Edward Trevelyan and the historian G M Trevelyan. They were often seen as eccentric, priggish, high-minded and totally self-regarding, yet they left their mark on British history.
Laura Trevelyan is a BBC journalist based in New York and a former BBC UN correspondent.
