Winchester Festival: Frank Gardner

Winchester Guildhall

8th Jul 2019 7.30PM - 8th Jul 2019 Event Type: Lecture

In this compelling talk, BBC Security Correspondent, Frank Gardner, recounts his own personal story of survival combined with his intimate knowledge of Middle Eastern history and politics.

In 1995, having worked as an investment banker in New York, London and Bahrain for nine years, Frank switched to journalism and joined the BBC. He reported extensively on the global ‘War on Terror’ in Guantanamo Bay, Yemen, Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere in the Middle East. In 2004 Frank survived being shot six times at close range by Al-Qaeda terrorists in Saudia Arabia. He was awarded an OBE in 2005 for services to journalism.
