An Audience with John Sergeant
Many people will remember John Sergeant as one of Britain’s most popular and respected broadcasters and authors. The former Chief Political Correspondent for the BBC and ITN Political Editor, his award-winning career as a political journalist, both for the BBC and ITN, has been as lengthy as it has been successful and seen him interview big political hitters like Prime Ministers Margaret Thatcher, John Major and Tony Blair.
In recent years though John has returned to his first love of light entertainment and can be seen regularly on programmes like The One Show, Have I Got News For You, QI, Room 101 and the News Quiz, and of course there were those appearances on Strictly…… Indeed, Sergeant’s two left feet approach to the art of the ballroom consistently found him at the bottom of the judges score board but the public loved him and he returned week after week. He finally left the show in Week 10 saying: “The trouble is that there is now a real danger that I might win the competition. Even for me that would be a joke too far.”
More recently there have been well received documentaries as well including John Sergeant’s Tourist Trail, Tracks of Empire – about the Indian Railways, and Britain’s First Photo Album about the pioneering photography of Francis Frith.
John has been absent from the Clive Conway books for a few years. Now back, he is consistently one of Clive Conway’s best-selling speakers,
Presented in association with Clive Conway Productions.
