Jeremy Bowen: The Middle East - a Personal Story
Jeremy Bowen, BBC International Editor, has reported on the Middle East for more than 30 years and is uniquely placed to explain its complex past and current troubled present, helping to shed light on the diverse political, cultural and religious differences But his acclaimed book, The Making of the Middle East brings a very personal story too, sharing the perspectives of ordinary men and women on the front line, their leaders, whether brutal or benign, and the power games that have so often wreaked devastation on civilian populations. Through his career, he has covered conflicts all over the world, most recently reporting from Ukraine and Israel/Gaza. He joins us in Bath for a special up-to-date assessment of the current situation.
“Jeremy Bowen is one of the finest journalists and broadcasters of our age” - Jonathan Dimbleby
Jeremy Bowen is one of the most recognisable journalists of the past few decades. He is a former Middle East correspondent and Middle East editor. He left frontline work for a period after his car came under fire from Israel Defence Forces in Lebanon in 2000 resulting in the death of two colleagues. He was one of few journalists reporting from Syria on the civil war and has most recently been reporting from Ukraine. He is author of Six Days: How the 1967 War Shaped the Middle East and The Arab Uprisings: The People Want the Fall of the Regime.
Please note that Jeremy is a working war correspondent. If he is called away to report on world events we will endeavour to reschedule or offer a ticket refund (minus booking fee) if this is not possible.
