Piers Morgan
How much influence do tabloid editors really have?
In a Hardtalk Extra interview broadcast on Friday 18 March, Gavin Esler talks to Piers Morgan, the former editor of Britain's Daily Mirror tabloid newspaper.

For a decade Piers Morgan was one of Britain's most influential and charismatic journalists, editing two best-selling tabloids.

He had intimate access to Britain's most powerful figures, including Tony Blair.

But it all ended last year, when he published photographs of British soldiers allegedly abusing Iraqis. He couldn't prove their authenticity - yet still maintains they could still prove genuine.

HARDtalk Extra can be seen on Fridays on BBC World at 04:30 GMT, 11:30 GMT, 15:30 GMT, 19:30 GMT and 00:30 GMT.

It can also be seen on BBC News 24 at 04:30 and 23:30
