Boundless admiration for the war reporters of course - Martha Gellhorn and Clare Hollingworth are thre first two that come to mind. When I read this though the person I first thought of was Kate Adie. At one time it seemed that every time a war broke out or there was a dangerous situation Kate was there. I particularly remember her reports of the atrocities in TiananmenSquare.

I have always admired Martin Bell, who believed so strongly about the politics he even went to parliament. He always seemed to be looking at the whys for things, why did this happen, how can we change this, rather than the current sensationalist reporting which makes me want to turn over or even off!
