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.

Cambridge Series 16: Demsytifying the Social Robot

Hay Festival 2018, 

Sensationalist media coverage and sci-fi films often give a skewed impression of human-like and social robots, and this has left a major gap between the public perception of what they can do and their actual capabilities. The Senior Lecturer at University of Cambridge’s Computer Laboratory will give a more balanced view and outline how social robots can contribute to the public good.

Iain M. Banks

Hay Festival 2000, 
'Banks is a phenomenon: the wildly successful, fearlessly creative author of brilliant and disturbing novels, he's equally at home writing pure science fiction of a peculiarly gnarly nature and elegance.' (William Gibson) Banks discusses his new sci-fi novel Look to Windward. It was one of the less glorious incidents of the Idiran wars that led to the destruction of two suns and the billions of lives they supported. Now, 800 years later, the light from the first of those deaths has reached the Culture's Masaq' Orbital. A Chelgrian emissary is dispatched to the Culture. 'Few of us have been exposed to a talent so manifest and of such extraordinary depth.' (New York Review of Science Fiction)
