Video Interviews

Steve Richards

Having covered politics for over 20 years for the BBC, in print and on the live stage, Steve examines events in Westminster with wit and an insider’s knowledge. A presenter of Radio 4’s Week in Westminster, he is also the author of Prime Ministers: Reflections on Leadership and The Prime Ministers We Never Had. Having also presented TV and radio series profiling British PMs and their achievements he knows them well and argues that they are all more complicated and interesting than their caricatures suggest. His successful Rock N Roll Politics stage show regularly sells out in London and the Edinburgh Fringe, and the accompanying podcast also presents his original take on British politics, its absurdities and dramas with insight and humour.
