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.
How much influence do tabloid editors really have?
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.
