X CHRISTOPHER LONG is a British journalist, editor and broadcaster. Born and educated in England, he began reading Law at the Inner Temple in London before training and working in marketing management and as a copywriter for advertising agencies in Britain and overseas. In 1978 he became a journalist.

From 1978-1983 he was a specialist London news and current affairs reporter for the London Newspaper Group. He was a feature writer and diarist (e.g. London Evening Standard), a columnist and leader writer for several publications (e.g. London Portrait Magazine) an editor of newspapers and books and an occasional radio broadcaster (e.g. LBC, BBC).

From 1987-1990 he was the founding editor of the award-winning World Magazine and of The Music Magazine, both later acquired by the BBC.

From 1991-1999 he was one of the longest-serving war correspondents in the Balkans reporting for British and overseas press, radio and television. He reported from Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Macedonia / Kosovo to newspapers such as the London Evening Standard and to broadcasters such as Reuters Radio News, the BBC, SABC and BBC World Service. X He was a frequent contributor to B-Sky-B News and to Channel 4/ITN News as well as producing a war documentary for NHK TV (Japan).

In 1992-1993 he was an investigative reporter for The Observer (London) and in 1994-95 became a founder member of the Internet Developers' Association as one of the UK's first web site developers with a particular interest in 'news on demand' (see this site) The first pages of this site were prepared in 1994, using a Mac, TeachText and a Mosaic/Netscape browser. It was launched, using HTML 2.0, early in 1995 (via a dircon.co.uk domain). From 2008 to 2011 its pages were built in HTML Transitional + CSS. Pages created or edited since then use 'pure' HTML5 + CSS3 – i.e. the site does not use Javascript, JQuery, Flash, etc. This site participated in the IT revolution, being among the first 3,000 sites. In mid-1994 there were an estimated 2,738 web sites throughout the world and by the end of 1995 there were more than 10,000..

In 2001 he settled in France where he contributes to French newspapers and magazines and continues to edit web content. He is also an independent French/English interpreter for museums, associations, web sites, businesses and lawyers (see links below).

X In their spare time he and his wife Sarah breed pedigree Dorset Down sheep on five hectares of grassland in Normandy.
