Kate Adie and Frank Gardner in conversation

In a conversation chaired by Yalda Hakim, Kate Adie and Frank Gardner discuss their experiences of reporting on the Army.

Chaired by BBC World News correspondent, Yalda Hakim, this conversation will explore the relationship between journalism and the Army. Drawing on their personal experiences, Kate Adie and Frank Gardner will discuss the challenges of reporting on the British Army.

Kate Adie is well known for her long service as the BBC’s Chief News Correspondent. Her assignments include both Gulf Wars, the final Nato intervention in Kosovo, the Herald of Free Enterprise disaster in Zeebrugge, the massacre at Dunblane, the Selby rail crash, the SAS lifting of the Iran Embassy Siege, the Bologna railway station bombing and the Tiananmen Square protest in Beijing in 1989. She also reported on ‘The Troubles’ in Northern Ireland, and the Good Friday Agreement.

Frank Gardner is the BBC's award-winning Security Correspondent, reporting and presenting for TV, radio and online on a wide range of global security and terrorism stories. He has also written three Sunday Times bestsellers: ‘Blood and Sand’, ‘Far Horizons’, and his debut novel ‘Crisis’, published in June 2016. He served for six years as a Territorial Army officer in The Royal Green Jackets. While filming in Saudi Arabia in 2004 Frank was shot six times at close range by terrorists but survived with major injuries. From 1997-2000 he was the BBC’s Gulf Correspondent in Dubai, then BBC Middle East Correspondent in Cairo. He was awarded the OBE by HM The Queen in 2005 for services to journalism.
