Robert Peston was a leading financial journalist before his BBC coverage of the collapse of Northern Rock made him recognisable in most households. The financial crisis was as much about the failings of banks as it was about the failings of political leadership, a connection Robert didn't miss as he transitioned into a leading political journalist.

Along with hosting ITV's Sunday morning political commentary, Robert founded Speakers for Schools, a venture that facilitates pro-bono speakers to state secondary schools.

Robert joins us to discuss his new book simply titled 'WTF' (use your imagination!). The book addresses causes of our current political and financial scene, with time for questions at the end.

After the discussion, Robert will be joined by Pete Hahn, Dean and Henry Grunfeld Professor, another regular on BBC's Northern Rock, to reminiscence and answer questions on how 10 years ago played out.

Robert Peston's book 'WTF' will be available for purchase on the night and Robert will sign copies following the lecture.
Speaker(s): Robert Peston, Political Editor, ITV News
Robert Peston is ITV's political editor, presenter of the politics show Peston on Sunday and founder of the education charity, Speakers for Schools. He has written four books, "How Do We Fix This Mess", "Who Runs Britain?", "Brown's Britain" and his latest one, "WTF?", which explains the people's revolt against the establishment and how to make capitalism fairer.

For a decade until the end of 2015, Robert was at the BBC, as economics editor and business editor. Previously he was City editor at the Sunday Telegraph, political editor and financial editor at the FT, a columnist for the New Statesman, and at the Independent in various roles.

Robert has won more than 30 awards for his journalism, including Journalist of the Year from the Royal Television Society.
