Frank Gardner had a love of all things Arabic and after studying Arab and Islamic studies at university, he became a banker then a journalist with the BBC. Ironic then that he was shot and left for dead in Riyadh by a passing group of Islamic extremists. His bravery in the face of his injuries and subsequent disabilities is outstanding.
