Michael Portillo “Life: A Game of Two Halves”
Sponsored by JM Finn
Michael Portillo is spending 2022 filming great railway journeys for BBC2, for the fourteenth year in a row. His series have now covered five continents. He is also working on new televised walks, in his wistful series for Channel 5. He has a Friday evening culture show on Friday evenings on Times Radio, and will be remembered for the sixteen years during which he occupied the sofa on BBC1’s satirical late night look at politics, “This Week”. Before beginning his broadcasting career he had been a Member of Parliament for most of the period 1984-2005, serving as a junior minister under Margaret Thatcher, and in the cabinet for five years in John Major’s government.
In this lecture, Michael will talk about his remarkable life and take questions from the audience.
