The most outspoken member of The Birmingham Six talks to the former editor of Private Eye and now the editor of The Oldie about his experience of interrogation, trial and imprisonment in the most famous miscarrige of justice of recent years. In the Evening Standard, Ingrams wrote of Forever Lost, Forever Gone - "Anyone who still believes that our policemen are wonderful or that British justice is the finest in the world should read Mr. Hill's gripping account. It is impossible to do so without feeling indignation and shame that such things could be done in our name"

Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns that put Donald Trump in the White House

Hay Festival 2018, 

As chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee during the 2016 campaign, Brazile had a front-row seat to the wildest, craziest, and most disturbing presidential race in American history. She was called to take over a party riven by scandal and allegations of corruption, and then thrust into the international spotlight after the DNC email system was hacked by the Russians, a brazen and wholly unprecedented attempt by a foreign power to influence a presidential election. She talks about the roles played by Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and President Obama with an insider’s knowledge and looks forward to the 2018 November mid-terms and the potential Democrat runners for 2020.
