Speaker Profile

About Andrew Marr

Andrew Marr is a highly renowned political journalist and commentator, best-selling author and speaker.

After carving out a successful journalistic career with the Economist, the Scotsman and the Independent, Marr was appointed political editor at the BBC in 2000, and became the face of current affairs on our television screens as the world came to terms with a turbulent post-Millennium era. As the Twin Towers came down in the horrific 9/11 attacks and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq developed, Marr was the man tasked with holding heads of state to account in front of the cameras and breaking down the facts of complex conflicts for the benefit of the living room audience.

His informed, passionate and charismatic style of presenting won him many plaudits and gongs over the years, including the Richard Dimbleby Award at the 2004 British Academy Television Awards. His affable nature also made the transition from political commentator to TV personality a simple one, when in 2007 he was asked to present The Andrew Marr Show on BBC One, which is now in its ninth year of broadcasting.

The Sunday morning political chat show sees Marr in his element, chewing the fat with the political movers and shakers; digestable Sunday morning discourse that also dissects the serious and pressing issues present in the political scene. Other TV outings fronted by Marr include 'Andrew Marr's The Making of Modern Britain', 'Andrew Marr's History of the World' and an acclaimed three part series which looked at the reign of Queen Elizabeth II ahead of the Diamond Jubilee. And Marr's work as an author should also not be overlooked; he has penned no less than eight titles in addition to his huge body of journalistic work.

From his years on the beat as a political journalist to his status as BBC television's current affairs figurehead, Marr can combine knowledge and clout with charm and charisma like few others.
