3 Brilliant collection of British ambassadors' valedictory dispatches (audio) (written extracts). Lord Moran on Canada: "Anyone who is even moderately good at what they do – in literature, the theatre, skiing or whatever – tends to become a national figure, and anyone who stands out at all from the crowd tends to be praised to the skies and given the Order of Canada at once" (1984)
