Jeremy Paxman talks shop with members of the AACL and FPA

Jeremy Paxman, BBC presenter and one of Britain’s best known journalists, joined The Association of American Correspondents in London for a special lunch at the Foreign Press Association.

We talked a little about his best-selling book and BBC documentary series, The Victorians, and a lot about politics and our trade.

Paxman began by raising an eyebrow and asking: “Does anyone really want to hear about The Victorians?”  We did — but we also covered a wide range of interesting topics, from Tony Blair’s good memory to covering the Troubles.

I’ m delighted to report that someone asked him the same question, over and over  and over again.
