Live interview and Q&A with Emily Maitlis

Dubbed by The Guardian as the ‘BBC’s interrogator-in-chief’ and ‘arguably the BBC’s sharpest interviewer and lead presenter of Newsnight’, Emily Maitlis discusses her bestselling book Airhead: The Imperfect Art of Making News. The book reveals Emily’s own experiences in the fast-paced and often unpredictable world of TV news, giving the reader behind the scenes insight into some of the biggest national and international stories and interviews of the last decade. She says ‘making news is an essential but imperfect art, and it rarely goes according to plan.’
