Divorced, Beheaded, Died (MP3) by Kevin Flude, et al. (2010): Waterstones.com

So, i discover by accident, my book is now available as an audio book! No one told me and I'd be quite interested to know who the narrator is.

Cornelius Garrett is the narrator. Divorced, Beheaded, Died (MP3) by Kevin Flude, et al. (2010): Waterstones.com

Very useful report on the effect of Heritage on Tourism and the problems of preserving it in developing economies Salon IFA wrote: 'The role of heritage in resolving poverty The National Trust’s debate touches on the complex inter-relationship between heritage and tourism; a new report from the Global Heritage Fund (GHF) shows that something like 80 per cent of global tourism is heritage and culture related. While richer nations debate the question of just how far to go in the direction of ‘entertainment’ in order to grow that tourism income, poorer nations are seeing their heritage eroding for want of investment in basic protection and conservation. Heritage could play a central role in meeting the UN’s aim of eradicating global poverty, the report argues, if this position were reversed, and investment in heritage conservation became a core component of international development strategy.
