While US SCUD missiles were pointed at Baghdad during the 1991 Gulf war, most of the media left the city. Maggie O'Kane decided to stay and report on the invasion. She has since reported from many war zones, most notably Bosnia 1991 - 1995 for The Guardian newspaper. Her reports centered on the everyday lives of the Bosnian people caught up in the war. In 2003 Maggie's career took a new direction. She was appointed Editorial Director of Guardian Films, a documentary unit using the journalistic resources of the newspaper to create programmes for television and the web. The unit has also been successful with exploring innovative ways of telling stories. Tonight, O'Kane reflects on the professional and personal choices she faced while reporting from numerous war zones.
