Robert Kee a British broadcaster, journalist, and writer, was born on the 5th of Oct,1919, and is known for his historical works on World War II and Ireland.

His series extremely challenged viewers on the UK mainland as Kee interviewed gunmen and bombers who had taken part in Ireland's struggle for independence.

Adversities that Kee faced -

Whereas in 1983 Kee had officially collaborated with David Frost, Anna Ford, Michael Parkinson, and Angela Rippon to become one of the so-called "Famous Five", who launched TV-am in a blaze of publicity.

Sure, most writers dream of the cheers,

but a writer who will be a writer tomorrow

is one who writes even when the fans don’t show up.  

A writer writes when everything looks hopeless

and when everything is falling into place.  

A writer writes as a baby cooks.
