British news correspondent

Adie is especially famous for her reports from war zones (Turkey, Lebanon, the Gulf War, China, the former Yugoslavia, etc.). Her mother became pregnant while her husband was away at war and Adie was adopted as a baby by a pharmacist and his wife in Sunderland. She had a very happy childhood as an only child. She graduated from the University of Sunderland, where she is now an Honorary Professor of Broadcasting and Journalism. She has traced and met her birth family, and they have an excellent continuing relationship.
