The World Trade Organisation summit in Hong Kong is just the kind of event the BBC must cover. And just the kind of story which strikes a chill into the heart of most journalists.
There'll be hours of hanging around in airless media centres and press briefing rooms.
There'll be the frustrating search for 'players' - diplomats and delegates who can really say what's going on in the talks, as opposed to those who have strong opinions but don'r really know where the decisions are being taken.
Luckily for us, there's Judy Swallow. She seems to be having fun even if she isn't. She seems to have limitless energy chasing around the streets from demonstration to demonstration, carpeted corridor to marbled hallway, tracking down interesting and informed guests.
No one doubts the summit is important and the decisions made in the negotiating rooms can make the difference between survival and crippling poverty for many.
But the details are so complex, there are so many numbers, making the whole thing clear on radio is hard.
I hope you agree that Judy's reporting is getting to the heart of what matters.
