87. CHURCHILL: THE ORIGINS OF GREATNESS

THE CHURCHILL LECTURE
Generously sponsored by

Michael Dobbs, Conservative Peer and author, will explore Churchill’s passion, fragility and power, and he is no ordinary investigator of power. He was with Margaret Thatcher when she took her first steps into Downing Street, and with John Major when he was kicked out. But he remains most famous for creating the ultimate in Machiavellian politicians, Francis Urquhart, star of the global phenomenon that is House of Cards.

Lord Dobbs will be in conversation with Sir Michael Pakenham.
