Margaret Thatcher is one of the most polarising political figures of British 20th Century history. After becoming the first female Prime Minister, she became the first post war PM to win three consecutive general elections. Charles Moore is a former editor of The Daily Telegraph, The Spectator, and The Sunday Times, and the author of her official biography.

He was given unfettered access to her records, and conducted interviews with civil servants who were given permission to speak to him. Dan and Charles have a frank discussion about Thatcher, trying to make sense of the varying narratives told about her life.
