Michael Cockerell is Britain’s most celebrated TV documentary-maker, with a string of awards for his witty and eye-opening profiles of our Prime Ministers and other top politicians. ‘You are no one in British politics until you’ve been Cockerelled,’ said one newspaper.

Please register early as places are limited for this event!



Our political leaders spend their careers spinning their images and polishing their achievements; Michael Cockerell has spent his professional life stripping off the gloss. Drawing on his unique experience of having filmed and interviewed all of the past ten Prime Ministers, Cockerell tells how he manages to lull some of the wariest people in the land into candour.

He also shows how questions of sex are never far from the surface in Westminster. As he was once warned by a seasoned politico: ‘These people at No. 10 can be very seductive – beware the stocking tops of power.’

This event is held in conjunction with Biteback Publishing.
