BBC Hardtalk’s presenter, Stephen Sackur rates really high in my list. He is a very skillful interviewer and in my mind, his interviews borders on unrelenting, guttural interrogations. Having followed Hard Talk for a while now, I am ever so impressed with the way he asks and handle the conversations in this one hour program. Hardtalk is an interesting program to watch, especially if the personality being interviewed is one of controversial nature. Even more compelling to watch the reactions of the one in the hot seat. Sackur has left me pinned to my seat several times now. I’ve been enlightened and at the same time, amazed by his skills and knowledge. One thing for sure, I’d piss in my pants if I was the one in the hot seat!
