Event Details

Award-winning journalist and broadcaster Trevor McDonald will be joining us to talk about his life, work and new autobiography, An Improbable Life, with Emma Graham-Harrison, senior foreign correspondent for the Guardian and Observer.

Born in Trinidad in 1939, McDonald came to Britain in 1969 and joined the BBC World Service, moving to ITN in 1973. In 1992 he became the first sole presenter of ITN’s News at Ten, and enclosed the Late Evening News until 2005, by which point he had received more awards than any other news broadcaster in Britain.

Throughout his remarkable career, McDonald has revealed to us history in the making, witnessing war and death as well as liberation. He has risked his life to meet and talk with despots - among them Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi - and freedom-fighters; in 1990 he conducted the first British television interview with Nelson Mandela after his release from prison.

His autobiography, An Improbable Life, chronicles his incredible experiences with engaging intimacy and moving insight.

Tickets for this event are £20 or £35 with a copy of An Improbable Life (RRP £20).

Running time: 90 minutes, no interval.
