Luke Harding talks to Nik Gowing

Collusion: How Russia Helped Trump win the White House

Winter Weekend 2017, 
In December 2016 Harding meets former MI6 officer Christopher Steele to discuss the president-elect’s connections with Russia. Harding decides to follow the money and the sex. In Washington, January 2017, Steele’s explosive dossier alleges that the Kremlin has been ‘cultivating, supporting and assisting’ Trump for years and that they have compromising information about him. Trump responds on Twitter, ‘FAKE NEWS’.
 
COLLUSION is a gripping, alarming exposé about the biggest political scandal of the modern era, in which Harding reveals the true nature of Trump’s decades-long relationship with Russia and presents the gripping inside story of Steele’s dossier. Drawing on exclusive new material and key sources from the intelligence community, Harding tells an astonishing story of offshore money, sketchy real-estate deals, a Miss Universe Pageant, mobsters, money laundering, hacking and Kremlin espionage. He shines a light on powerful Russian players like Aras Agalarov, Natalia Veselnitskaya and Sergey Kislyak, whose motivations and instructions may have come from Vladimir Putin himself. COLLUSION is up-to-date to the minute, including the indictments of campaign manager, Paul Manafort and Mike Flynn, which threaten to engulf Trump’s administration.
 
Harding is an award-winning foreign correspondent with the Guardian. Between 2007 and 2011 he was the Guardian's Moscow bureau chief; the Kremlin expelled him from the country in the first case of its kind since the cold war. He is the author of A Very Expensive Poison: The Definitive Story of the Murder of Litvinenko and Russia's War with the West, The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World’s Most Wanted ManMafia State and co-author of WikiLeaks: Inside Julian Assange's War on Secrecy, The Liar: The Fall of Jonathan Aitken (nominated for the Orwell Prize). Two of Harding's books have been made into films; The Fifth Estate and Snowden.

Fabulous Science: Exploding Myths in the History of Scientific Discovery

Hay Festival 2003, 
Louis Pasteur suppressed 'awkward' data because it didn't support the case he was making. George Mendel, the supposed 'founder of genetics' never grasped the fundamental principles of 'Mendelian' genetics. Joseph Lister's famously clean hospital wards were actually notoriously dirty. Drawing on history of science scholarship, Waller shows that many of our greatest heroes of science were less than honest about the experimental data and not above using friends in high places to help get their ideas accepted.

The Ancient Celts

Hay Festival 2018, 

Cunliffe’s classic study of the ancient Celtic world was first published in 1997. Since then huge advances have taken place in our knowledge: new finds, new ways of using DNA records to understand Celtic origins, new ideas about the proto-urban nature of early chieftains' strongholds. Cunliffe explores the archaeological reality of these bold warriors and skilled craftsmen of barbarian Europe, who inspired fear in both the Greeks and the Romans. He investigates the texts of the Classical writers and contrasts their view of the Celts with current archaeological findings.

The Paradoxal Compass: Drake’s Dilemma

Hay Festival 2018, 

Morpurgo dramatises an episode in Francis Drake's circumnavigation during which the Golden Hind was stranded on a rock off Celebes, Indonesia. What altercation occurred between Drake and the ship's chaplain, Francis Fletcher, during those terrifying 20 hours? Morpurgo makes a compelling argument for what was really at the heart of that disagreement, and its present-day repercussions. He argues that the Tudor navigators and their stories may hold the key to how we should approach the current environmental crisis. Chaired by Daisy Leitch.

Josephine Hart’s Poetry Hour: Poetry of the Great War

Hay Festival 2018, 
Today's programme of 30 First World War poems gives voice to the humanity, loss and suffering of the poets of the Great War. The selection includes Wilfred Owen’s Dulce et Decorum Est, W. B. Yeats’ An Irish Airman Foresees His Death and Rudyard Kipling’s Epitaphs of The War. For over 25 years Josephine Hart’s hugely popular Poetry Hours, founded originally as Gallery Poets in the West End, were presented at such celebrated venues as The National Theatre, The Donmar Warehouse, The New York Public Library and Harvard University, they now continue quarterly at the British Library and, annually, here at Hay, at London University and at The Abbey Theatre in Dublin. Josephine wrote wonderfully incisive introductions to the life and work of each poet as, like Eliot, she believed that ‘we understand the work better when we understand something of the poet’s life'.
