The Audible original series is hosted by veteran broadcaster David Dimbleby, one of the UK’s most respected politics and current affairs journalists.

Audible Live: The Sun King offers an exclusive, in conversation with, panel event with veteran broadcaster David Dimbleby, who is joined by journalist and broadcaster Miranda Sawyer and Olivier Award winning James Graham, playwright of Ink, a play that leads with the birth of this country's most influential newspaper and the rise of a young and rebellious Rupert Murdoch.
