Britain and Ireland: A Shared Heritage

Roy Hattersley in conversation with Dr John Bowman. In spite of ancient enmities and recent conflict, Anglo-Irish relations have never been better than they are now in the early decades of the twenty-first century. Roy Hattersley served as a deputy leader of the British Labour Party, government minister and shadow minister in a long political career that lasted almost three decades. He has written many books, mainly history and biography, notably David Lloyd George: The Great Outsider. No UK politician is better placed to assess the shared heritage between Britain and Ireland than Roy Hattersley.

Recorded at Dublin Castle, Printworks venue on 26th September 2013.
