QUESTIONS, QUESTIONS, QUESTIONS
Who hasn’t Jeremy Paxman interviewed? Not Margaret Thatcher, apparently, but nearly everybody else worth interviewing has at some stage sat in front of BBC Newsnight's Great Interrogator in his 25 years at the helm. We’re delighted to have him here to discuss his memoir A Life in Questions - which will, of course, be followed by yet more from the audience.
Chaired by Ruth Wishart.
