Kate Adie As the old joke went - British soldiers knew they were in trouble when Kate Adie arrived on the scene. She was the blonde in the pearl earrings who reported memorably and courageously from the world's worst trouble spots, including Tiananmen Square, the Gulf and Northern Ireland, first coming to prominence for her coverage of the 1980 Iranian Embassy siege.
Self-styled as the 'aging old trout', Kate has recently published her memoirs of life on the front line. She joins Jenni to discuss her close encounters with bullets, the mayhem of desert warfare and the eccentricities of royal tours. The Kindness of Strangers - The Autobiography by Kate Adie is published by Headline ISBN: 0755310721
