Meet the presenter: Bridget Kendall
As BBC foreign correspondent I travelled the world for nearly 30 years from Afghanistan to Peru, from Tehran to Tokyo.
I was in Moscow for the 1991 USSR collapse and in Washington for Bill Clinton’s Presidency. I Interviewed Gorbachev, Putin, Mrs Thatcher and Hillary Clinton.
As well as the Forum host, I’m now the first female master of Cambridge University’s oldest college - Peterhouse.
