The famous daily leader columns in The Times have reflected the views of The Editor and the paper’s most senior journalists since the early 19th century. In this ever-popular event, which has been part of the Festival programme for over a decade, we go behind the scenes to find out how the topics for the leader columns are chosen. Join members of The Times editorial team: Danny Finkelstein, David Aaronovitch, Catherine Philp and Oliver Kamm as they discuss the biggest, the most controversial and the quirkiest stories in the news before they write the leaders for the following day’s newspaper.
