He presented the main BBC One bulletins live from Kyiv during the war in Ukraine. Clive also presented the documentary, The Crown Jewels for BBC1, which was screened as part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations. His travel series Clive Myrie’s Italian Roadtrip, was a hit on BBC2, and one of the most popular shows on the BBC.

First posted to Japan after becoming BBC’s foreign correspondent, Clive then held posts as Washington correspondent, covering the administrations of three US presidents, six US presidential elections and the impeachment of Bill Clinton. He has also served as the BBC’s Africa, Asia and Europe Correspondent and was part of the BBC’s presenting team covering the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the former Yugoslavia.
