'No doubt' Abbott will lead Liberals in Australian election

HARDtalk is in Australia for a series of interviews to test the political, cultural and economic climate. Though Australia is enjoying an economic boom its people seem dissatisfied with the vision and leadership of the country's politicians.

Malcolm Turnbull is one of Australia's most flamboyant politicians.

Not so long ago he was seen as a prime minister in waiting - he was leader of the opposition Liberal party until ousted just over a year ago.

But is he content to be an MP and a shadow minister or, as Stephen Sackur asks him, does he have ambitions to retake the leadership of the Liberal Party and to become Prime Minister of Australia?

Find out who is coming up on the programme by following us on Twitter.

You can watch the full interview on BBC World News on Monday 28th February 2011 at 0430, 1530 and 2130 GMT and on BBC News Channel at 0430 and 2330.
