But, as her book reveals, her life has been even more eventful than we can imagine. Raised in post-war Sunderland, where life was ‘a sunny experience, full of meat-paste sandwiches and Sunday school’, Kate has reported memorably and courageously from many of the world’s trouble spots since she joined the BBC in 1969. The Kindness of Strangers encompasses Adie’s reporting from, inter alia, Northem Ireland, the Middle East, Tiananmen Square and, of course, the Gulf War of 1991.”
