For seventy years David Dimbleby has been one of Britain’s most loved and respected broadcasters. He joins us to reveal the people, events and controversies he encountered along the way.

David Dimbleby began his career in television aged 12 and went on to interview prime ministers and presidents, make award-winning documentaries, chair Question Time for 25 years, and anchor the BBC’s live coverage of historic national and world events.

As a broadcaster for the BBC, David had an obligation to appear a neutral observer. Now finally ‘off the leash’, he joins to share what he really thinks about politics and the state of Britain with his characteristic wit, clarity and insight.

Offering an honest accounts of broadcasting from the inside, from commentating on Diana’s funeral to anchoring ten successive General Election night results programmes, David will share the faux pas and the secrets of the craft from a lifetime at the heart of British broadcasting.

He will reveal his own battles with politicians; query the purpose and effect of political interviews; and consider the power of broadcasting to explore and amplify the public voice an increasingly polarised world.

David Dimbleby has been there for us at nearly every major national event of the last fifty years. Serious, outspoken, and leavened with humour, this event confirms David has seen it all – and is now telling it as he sees it.
