|Duration||1 hour (approx)|
Join us at the refurbished City Varieties Music Hall in central Leeds where BBC Newsnight's Gavin Esler presents a fascinating portrait of leadership in the modern world.
Esler draws upon 30 years’ experience at the BBC to show how leaders in all fields, from politics to business, showbiz to sport, are masters at crafting stories – about themselves, their origins and their beliefs.
Reflecting on his encounters with the likes of Clinton, Blair, Mandela, Branson, Thatcher, Merkel and also Angelina Jolie, Lady Gaga, Dolly Parton and even members of the IRA, Esler reveals how leaders create their images, how media has changed story telling and how it can all go horribly wrong for those at the top.
