1. Moore To Be Awarded in Germany

    By Tim Roth on 2003-02-03

    Roger Moore will be honored by the German government next month for his work with the U.N. Children’s Fund (UNICEF).

    President Johannes Rau will present the Bundesverdienstkreuz (Federal Service Cross, 1st Class) to Moore, best known for his James Bond films, at a February 10th ceremony in Berlin’s Bellevue Palace, the president’s office said Friday. It’s the highest award you can receive in Germany by the government.

    Moore, 75, serves as a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF’s efforts to help children living in poverty in developing countries, including campaigns against the sexual exploitation of minors.
