He now introduces a photographic portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, from her first official pose as a baby in 1926 to greeting President Obama in 2009.

Roy Hattersley The politician turned writer’s latest book focuses on David Lloyd George, hailed both as ‘the man who won the war’ in 1918 and ‘the Great Outsider’ who exploited the establishment but never wished to join it. When his attempts to maintain the coalition government failed, he found himself out of office, in the political wilderness. Roy Hattersley’s own political perspective offers a fascinating insight into his story.
