Rob Watson Family
Growing up Rob never had an interest in journalism. When asked whether he was a budding Kate Adie from the word go he said; “No, not really, I was just one of this irritating children who always asked why. If someone said ‘go over there’ or ‘sit down’ I wanted to know why. It was sheer bloody-mindedness really that got me here, the urge to be quarrelsome in the face of authority.”
How did that go down at school then?
“They really encouraged it. I remember my history teacher comparing me to Holden Caulfield in Catcher In The Rye. It was a very liberal, intellectual institution where children were very much encouraged to think and speak for themselves, as they are now. But I didn’t have my heart set on journalism back then if that’s what you mean.”
