    Is Katie Stallard beautiful? I think so, yes!?

    Katie is one of the reasons I watch Sky. She strikes me as utterly fearless, whether reporting from the front line on the war in Ukraine, confronting Chinese police and bureaucrats in pursuit of a human rights story or trying to discover the truth in North Korea despite the close attention of her minders.. She also has a keen eye for the unusual – I remember, for instance, her report from the palace of the former Ukrainian autocrat. As an old man (I will be 80 later this year), I find it interesting that so many of Sky’s foreign correspondents are young women – all of them outstanding – like Amanda Walker and Hannah Thomas -Peter in the States and the award-winner herself, Alex Crawford. If there’s a hot spot, she’ll be there. I can remember Mary Malcolm, the first woman to read the news on television – and the controversy that caused at the time. How times have changed for the better. We not only have great female foreign correspondents like Katie, but Prime Ministers too.
