Journalist and broadcaster Kate Adie will discuss her career at the annual Dundee Christmas Lecture on November 30.

She is best known for her reports from war zones throughout the world and will give her talk at Dundee university’s Dalhouse Building.

‘An evening with Kate Adie’ will be chaired by Professor Sue Black, the university’s deputy principal for Public Engagement.

The lecture will be followed by a civic reception and booksigning of Kate’s new book, ‘Fighting on the home Front: The Legacy of Women in Word War One.’

A former chief news correspondent with BBC News, Kate reported on some of the biggest news stories around the world including the Iranian Embassy Siege, the Tianeman Square protests and the Gulf War. She was won a clutch of awards and was awarded the OBE in 1993.

The event is free but ticketed and is expected to be very popular. Tickets are available from events@dundee.ac.uk or from www.buyat.dundee.ac.uk
