Writer in residence: Tony Parson's week living at Heathrow

London's Heathrow Airport is one of the world's busiest hubs. Every year around 75 million passengers pass through Heathrow.

Early this year, one of its passengers decided to stay a little longer than most. The British writer Tony Parsons stayed for a week and took up post as writer in residence.

He came up with a collection called Departures: Seven Stories from Heathrow.

Tony Parsons reads from one of his stories and talks about the experience with Zeinab Badawi.
