Tim Llwellyn, whose book 'Spirit of the Phoenix: Beirut and the Story of Lebanon', published by I.B. Tauris, spoke about the dangers for Lebanon and about the British media's continued lack of enterprise and balance in reporting on Lebanon in particular - and its neighbours in general – in covering Hezbollah, the Lebanese South, the Golan Heights, Palestine and the newly fractured relationships between Israel and the US. To Llewellyn, all this spells danger, not compromise or justice. Tim was the BBC's Middle East Correspondent, based in Beirut in the 70s and early 80s, then in Nicosia between 1987 and 1992. Since then he has been a freelance writer and commentator on Middle East matters for a variety of publications and media outlets, including the BBC. He is a Trustee of the Arab British Centre.
