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. David’s 2011 book Voodoo Histories: The Role of the Conspiracy Theory in Shaping Modern History looked with a sceptical eye at some of the most infamous conspiracy tales of modern times.
David is the son of economist Sam Aaronovitch, 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 the BBC Radio 4 Documentary, The Norman Way, which examined the rule of King William the Conqueror and how the regime shaped England. David also hosted The Blair Years, a BBC series that put Tony Blair’s time as Prime Minister under the microscope.
