Former BBC chief news correspondent Kate Adie CBE has been announced as a speaker at the Garden Centre Association’s (GCA) annual conference in Bristol this month (January 26-29).

Attendees to the conference at Mercure Bristol Grand Hotel will be able to hear from Adie, who now presents From Our Own Correspondent on BBC Radio 4, on Tuesday, January 28.

Iain Wylie, chief executive of the GCA, explained: “We’re absolutely delighted to have confirmed Kate as one of our speakers on the Tuesday afternoon of our conference and are looking forward to hearing all about her impressive career.

“As the BBC’s Chief News Correspondent, Kate covered the Gulf War, the demise of the Soviet Union, the protests in Beijing’s Tiananmen Square and NATO’s campaign in Kosovo.

“She began her career as a technician in radio before being promoted to producer, specialising in arts and farming programmes.

“She then switched to television, directing religious outside broadcasts and sport and reporting for BBC Plymouth. Next came network news, before making her reputation reporting from war zones across the world.”
