About Kate Adie

From humble beginnings as a station assistant at BBC Radio Durham, Kate Adie OBE rose to become one of the world’s most prolific female war correspondents. Her coverage of the 1980 siege of the Iranian embassy in London, watched by millions of viewers, brought her to prominence as one of the few women reporting difficult and dangerous stories at the time. She currently presents From Our Own Correspondent on BBC Radio 4.

Her career has seen her constantly face-to-face with adversity and danger. She was arrested in Belgrade trying to gather material about General Tito, was in Tripoli during the US bombings of 1986, and accompanied the Coalition forces as they chased Saddam Hussein’s troops out of Kuwait in 1991. Perhaps her most famous reports came during the Chinese authorities’ killing of protestors in Tiananmen Square, Beijing, in 1989.

A highly sought-after speaker, she has also won numerous awards and honours, including the Broadcasting Press Guild’s Award for Outstanding Contribution to Broadcasting, an OBE in 1993, the Royal Television Society Journalism Award and the Monte Carlo International Golden Nymph. Kate has also received BAFTA’s Richard Dimbleby Award.
