Hannah Storm and John Crowley speak with Clive Myrie, BBC journalist, newsreader and presenter. In a wide-ranging and candid conversation, Clive discusses his recent reporting on the conflict in Ukraine and his experiences of covering Covid, paying tribute to the people with whom he has worked and detailing his determination to provide dignity to those whose stories he shares. Offering his thoughts on the importance of due impartiality, the impact that race has had on his reporting, and his perspective on press freedom and the Russian President Putin, he reflects on a career that has taken him around the world. Speaking with startling openness for a notoriously private individual, he shared how he manages his mental health and maintains perspective when covering difficult stories, and how he has adapted to the significant profile that has come with presenting the quiz show Mastermind.
