Historian and broadcaster Professor Simon Schama talks about his writing life, the second volume of his The Story of the Jews and his part in the recent landmark BBC series, Civilisations.

Schama has written many award-winning books including A History of Britain and The American Future and has presented more than 50 films for the BBC on subjects ranging from Tolstoy to American politics. He recently completed Belonging, the second volume of The Story of the Jews. It takes the story from the Jews’ expulsion from Spain in 1492 through to the dawn of the 20th century. His most recent television work was as a presenter of five of the nine episodes of Civilisations, an exploration of humanity’s desire to create across six continents.

Schama is professor of art history and history at Columbia University. Here he talks to LBC radio host Matthew Stadlen, a former Telegraph interviewer and BBC presenter.
