BBC Radio 4 Profile: Nick Clegg

He has demonstrated talents as a skier, a theatre actor and he speaks five languages.

Nick Clegg is also leader of the Liberal Democrats.

As his party met for its spring conference, John Kampfner looked at a man who seems as much at home in Brussels and Madrid as he does in the Palace of Westminster, and asks if he's got what it takes to achieve real power.

BBC Radio 4's Profile was first broadcast on Saturday 8 March 2008 at 1902 BST.
