It was always a pleasure seeing Katharine Whitehorn at journalism events, especially on dark cold winter evenings when we all thought twice about venturing out.   As a trailblazing journalist Kath wore her celebrity lightly and was keen to discuss current issues and of course look for copy for her next column.
