Kofi Annan - the man behind the diplomat

In an extended edition of Outlook, presenter Matthew Bannister talks to the former Secretary General of the United Nations, Kofi Annan.

He'll be reflecting on his life in international diplomacy - giving us some insights into his time as a rebellious schoolboy and a single father - and revealing the inside track on his face-to-face negotiations with some of the world's most notorious leaders, including the former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein.

Kofi Annan's memoir, written with Nader Mousavizadeh, is called: 'Interventions. A Life in War and Peace'
