One of the most familiar faces on our television screens for over 50 years, Sir Trevor is an extraordinary man with an extraordinary life story. Now in his 80th year, he is a natural storyteller and communicator, and he’ll recount his personal experiences of world events and interviews with some of the most known and renown figures of the 20th and 21st centuries including the first British television interview with Nelson Mandela; his reflections on the Windrush generation; and experiencing Barack Obama’s momentous inauguration as President of the USA. He’ll also share the anecdotes of face to face meetings with Saddam Hussein (the first and only one by a British television correspondent) and Muammar Gaddafi. A fascinating evening with one who has witnessed history in the making.
