43. CHEMICAL WARRIOR: SYRIA, SALISBURY AND SAVING LIVES AT WAR

For thirty years, Hamish de Bretton-Gordon has served and volunteered in conflict zones around the world. As the army’s foremost chemical weapons expert, he built a unique first-hand understanding of how to prevent attacks and train doctors on the frontline – saving countless lives in the process. Despite facing extraordinary personal danger, he has unearthed evidence of multiple chemical attacks in Syria and continues to advise the government at the highest level, including after the 2018 Novichok poisoning in Salisbury. Lifting the lid on his unique world of battlefield expertise and humanitarian work, in conversation with Guy Walters, this will be a thrilling story of bravery and compassion.
