Bonnie Greer (2014 event)

Best known in the UK as a dispassionate commentator on BBC Newsnight Review and Question Time – even when sitting beside the leader of the BNP – Bonnie Greer has now written the first volume of her memoirs, A Parallel Life. In this event she talks to journalist and broadcaster Ruth Wishart about her tough upbringing and how it feels to be the key character in a real-life rags to riches story. Filmed live at the 2014 Edinburgh International Book Festival.

You can also watch a short interview with Bonnie Greer, filmed in Charlotte Square Gardens just before her event.

Both recordings are also available to watch on our YouTube channel.
