There's a lot of video and audio available on YouTube, including a little embarrassing encounter I had on television with Mark E. Smith. Mark was in Manchester, I was in London and we were supposed to be discussing the death of John Peel. I thought at one point Mark was going to lick the camera lens. There's also a couple of discussions about my recent novels, and some radio programmes about the Clinton Years in the United States. I regularly appear on the BBC, many programs are available on the Gavin Esler On BBC iPlayer. I hope you enjoy looking and listening.

Gavin Esler - Power Play - 19 November 2010

All my novels start with the idea of a character put in an impossible position, rather than with a plot. Power Play started as an idea about a British ambassador to the United States torn between two countries that he loves, the UK and the USA, which he sees heading in opposite directions as the 'special relationship' suddenly becomes especially bad.
