Hugh Riminton

Hugh Riminton is one of Australia’s most experienced foreign correspondents.

Blown up, shot at and first-on-scene at some of the world’s most terrifying disasters, Hugh’s autobiography ‘Minefields – A Life in the News Game’, is a richly entertaining and deeply empathetic global adventure.

In conversation we discuss: the dangers of self-assumed power; being held at gunpoint; bribing his way into Moscow; the joy of Mandela; and an agreement to one last war.

WARNING: We also briefly discuss the Aramoana and Port Arthur massacres, which may be difficult for some listeners (timecode: 24:25 – 30:51). Find Hugh on Twitter: @hughriminton
