Winchester Festival: Andrew Marr

Winchester Guildhall

10th Jul 2019 6.00PM - 10th Jul 2019 Event Type: Lecture

The History of Modern Britain

Andrew Marr is one of the most familiar reporters, journalists, presenters and interviewers on television. He is the host of the weekly BBC1 programme The Andrew Marr Show as well as the presenter of BBC Radio 4’s Start the Week. Previously, he was Political Editor at BBC News.

Here, he takes a look at the history of Britain from the end of the Second World War to the turn of this century. He confronts the victory of shopping over politics, telling the story of how the great political visions of New Jerusalem or a second Elizabethan Age came to be defeated by a culture of consumerism, celebrity and self- gratification.
