Former minister and Conservative MP turned independent, Oliver Letwin has seen power up close and knows how fragile it is. In his ground-breaking book Apocalypse How?, he imagines a future when the complexity and interdependence of our technology mean that the national grid, GPS, electric cars and law and order itself are all vulnerable to disruption and collapse. In addition, argues Letwin, that future is just a whisper away. Join him to hear how we can, and should, face up to it.

In conversation with George Eaton, Assistant Editor of the New Statesman
