Date: Sunday 5th April 2009
Time: 19:50 to 21:00 (1 hour and 10 minutes long)
The election of Barack Obama to the presidency of the United States has been propelled as much by his skill as an orator as by any other factor. From the silver-tongued to the tongue-tied, this programme takes a look at the art and history of the political speech. Alan Yentob traces the awesome power of orators throughout history. What makes a good speech great? How much is content, how much is presentation? And has Obama brought eloquence back to 21st-century politics for good?
