Conrad Black

Listen in pop-out player

Lord Black of Crossharbour, the press baron who owned the Daily Telegraph was sentenced to six and half years in jail two years ago. This week, he astonished his detractors when he was released on appeal. Convicted of defrauding shareholders, the unrepentant Lord is now threatening to wreak vengeance on the foes he believes are responsible for his spectacular fall from grace. Michael Cockerell revisits a Profile he first made in 2007 and follows the latest twist in the astonishing story of Conrad Black. He asks if the man who admires Napoleon can make good on his threats to return to rout his enemies.
