Life in London: "I'm going to miss everything, except the weather"

"It's a very privileged job to have"

Swedish Radio has a total of 17 foreign correspondents, most of them stationed around the world, but some based in Stockholm with airplane tickets close at hand. Their job is to report on events around the globe and to bring first-hand experiences of global events straight to Swedish Radio's listeners.

Patrik Holmström has been Swedish Radio's man in London for the past two years, and has just returned to Stockholm for good. His time in London has meant covering the Olympics, observing raids on travellers' camps in the south of the country, and reporting on the UK's heated political discourse.

Radio Sweden caught up with Patrik just before he was about to get on stage for an afternoon of seminars and discussions about foreign affairs with the other correspondents at Södra Teatern in central Stockholm. We asked him about the differences between the UK and Sweden, and what it's like working as a journalist in another country.

Our journalism is based on credibility and impartiality. Swedish Radio is independent and not affiliated to any political, religious, financial, public or private interests.
