The journalist, who last month won the BAFTA Fellowship for her years of work reporting in some of the world’s most dangerous spots, looks back at one of the biggest stories she ever covered.

Adie documents the struggles she had reporting the story, having to fight the Chinese army and government in order to show the truth of what happened. She also looks at how she reported the story with experts, and looks at how the protest may have resulted in a different outcome if it occurred at a different time.

I Was There: Kate Adie on Tiananmen Square is on BBC Four at 22.00.
