BBC journalist Kate Adie has visited Oxford Brookes to give a talk as part of the Public Lecture Series.

Kate is an honorary graduate of Brookes and former chief news correspondent for BBC News.

The title of the talk was ‘Into Danger: people who risk their lives for work and why reporting the news isn’t an example of that (most of the time)’.

Kate’s journalistic skills twice earned her the title of Reporter of the Year by the Royal Television Society, the Broadcasting Press Guild Award for Outstanding Contribution to Broadcasting and an OBE from the Queen in 1993. She talked about her experiences and took questions from the audience.

Kate’s most high-profile role was with the BBC when she became well-known for reporting from war zones from around the world.

Lectures are free of charge and open to the public, but booking is essential.
