    Shimon Peres was in his early 20s when he first met David Ben-Gurion. Although the state that Ben-Gurion would lead through war and peace had not yet declared its precarious independence, the "Old Man", as he was called even then, was already a mythic figure. Peres, who came of age in the cabinets of Ben-Gurion, is uniquely placed to evoke this figure of stirring contradictions - a prophetic visionary and a canny pragmatist who early grasped the necessity of compromise for national survival.

    Israeli president, former prime minister, and Nobel Peace Prize winner Shimon Peres is one of the great statesmen of the modern world. Peres is also a fascinating, complex man: a brilliant intellectual who is entirely at home in the corridors of power, an individual revered by the world and yet highly controversial in his own country, at once a hero and a figure of tragedy. Listen as Shimon Peres sits down with his official biographer, Michael Bar-Zohar.
