More than 500 people have booked to hear one of the world's most experienced journalists, John Simpson, share his tales of reporting from over 30 war zones and interviewing controversial figures such as Saddam Hussein, at a Nottingham Trent University Distinguished Lecture this week.
Currently World Affairs editor of BBC News, John’s 40-year career has seen him report from more than 100 countries across the globe and interview world leaders such as Osama bin Laden, Nelson Mandela, Margaret Thatcher, Mikhail Gorbachev, Yasser Arafat and Colonel Gadhaffi.
He has covered many of the biggest stories of recent times including the Iranian revolution against the Shah, the fall of Communism in Eastern Europe and Russia, the Gulf Wars and the wars in Bosnia, the rise and then subsequent overthrow of the Taliban regime in Afghanistan.
The fully-booked Reporting the World lecture, which will take place on Thursday evening, is part of the university’s 2012/13 Distinguished Lecture Series.
