Michael Cockerell has been a BBC TV political reporter and documentary-maker for fifty years, winning a string of awards for his witty and eye-opening profiles of our top politicians. ‘You are no one in British politics until you’ve been Cockerelled,’ said one newspaper. He is an honorary fellow of his Oxford college, Corpus Christi, and was for ten years visiting professor of politics at Nottingham University. He is a regular radio broadcaster and writes for The Times, Daily Mail, The Guardian and The Spectator. Unmasking Our Leaders is his third book.
