Abstract

Raised in post-war Sunderland, where life was 'a sunny experience, full of meat-paste sandwiches and Sunday school', the author was regularly dispatched to report on disasters and conflicts from her beginnings at the BBC in 1969 throughout the 1980s as BBC's chief news correspondent and presenter of Radio Four. This volume encompasses the author's reporting from Northern Ireland, the Middle East, Tiananmen Square and the Gulf War of 1991. It offers a compelling combination of vivid frontline reporting and evocative writing and reveals the extraordinarily demanding life of the woman who is always at the heart of the action.
