An Improbable Life
Join us at Words Weekend for an intimate and unmissable afternoon with Sir Trevor McDonald to hear what life on the front lines of reporting truly entails.

Born and raised in Trinidad, building a career in Britain and spending his life travelling around the globe, it’s safe to say he is known, respected and admired the world over as one of the greatest broadcasters the UK has seen.

In his 80th year, Sir Trevor McDonald captivates audiences in An Improbable Life. Recounting anecdotes from Johannesburg whilst reporting on Nelson Mandela’s release from imprisonment, through to his interview with Saddam Hussein – McDonald being the first and the only British broadcaster to interview the infamous dictator.
