HARDtalk

HARDtalk asks the difficult questions and gets behind the stories that make the news - from international political leaders to entertainers; from corporate decision-makers to ordinary individuals facing huge challenges.

HARDtalk is the hard-hitting flagship news programme shown on BBC World News and the BBC News channel.

The half hour interview is the result of detailed research and in-depth investigations.

The main presenter of HARDtalk is Stephen Sackur, one of the BBC's most respected journalists. Before joining HARDtalk, he worked as a correspondent in the Middle East, America and Brussels.
