David Aaronovitch is a journalist and an author. His long-running column for The Times began in 2005 and it’s going strong. He has also contributed to The Guardian, The Observer and New Statesman. Davis’s 2011 book Voodoo Histories: The Role of the Conspiracy Theory in Shaping Modern History looks at some of the most infamous conspiracy theories of modern times with a very skeptical eye.
David is the son of economist Sam Aaronivitch, a senior member of the Communist Party of Great Britain, which informed David’s early politics. He appeared on University Challenge as part of a 1975 Manchester University team that gave the name of well-know Communists as an answer for all questions as a protest against the programme’s bias toward Oxford and Cambridge. David himself attended Balliol College in Oxford – prior to his expulsion.
David has also appeared on television, as a guest on Have I Got News For You and has made appearances on BBC News 24. He presented a 2004 BBC Radio 4 Documentary called The Norman Way, which examined the rule of King William the Conqueror and how the regime shaped England. David also hosted a series for the BBC called The Blair Years, that put Tony Blair’s time as Prime Minister under the microscope. David is the 2001 winner of the Orwell Prize for Political Journalism and a 2003 Columnist of the Year winner from What the Papers Say.
