David Olusoga
Looking Back to Look Forward

‘The past haunts the present in all areas of our national conversation’ so says David Olusoga, festival patron and one of our most prominent, engaging and accessible TV historians. His ground-breaking book Black and British was the deserving winner of last year’s PEN Hessell-Tiltman prize. A BBC producer-turned presenter, most recently on our screens in A House Through Time and Civilisations, join Olusoga as he pieces together the threads of Britain’s forgotten past, its contested present and questions for the future.
