The cold light of reason

Driving to work this morning I listened to The Choice, a Radio 4 series about people who are forced into choices most of us are spared. Today's guest was mountaineer Cathy O' Dowd, whose story of her encounter, on Everest, with a dying climber, will chill to the bone. Ms O'Dowd's delivery is matter of fact and dispassionate, but very moving nonetheless.

Have a listen. If you're in the UK, that is. Unfortunately overseas readers probably won't be able to.
