Kate Adie

It became something of a joke in the British army that when Kate Adie arrived on the scene, the soldiers knew they were in trouble.

Kate became one of the best-known faces on television serving as the BBC’s chief news correspondent from 1989 to 2003. She’s considered to be amongst the most reliable and courageous of reporters of all time, as well as one of the first British women to send dipatches from danger zones around the world. A long-serving presenter of Radio 4’s From Our Own Correspondent and presenter/ contributor to many other radio and TV programmes, we’re delighted that Kate Adie will be visiting the Gardens.

In a candid talk that focuses on her book The Kindness of Strangers: The Autobiography, Kate will discuss her life, work and experiences with fellow journalist Luke de Costa. From growing up in Sunderland to starting work at the BBC, from covering the Iranian Embassy Siege to attending Royal Visits, from the First Gulf War to tales of sand and scorpions… this is a talk that’ll be packed with punch, like the lady herself.
