Former London Mayor Ken Livingstone talks to Julia Wheeler about the people, places and the politics that have shaped the landscape, and how the city has changed dramatically over the last 60 years. With a witty and worldly eye he he shares his views on every aspect of the city, from playing on bomb sites in an era where St Paul's was the tallest building in the city, to 2019 where the gleaming towers of the Shard and Walkie Talkie dominate the skyline, thanks to new building rules introduced by his administration.
Ken Livingstone served as the Leader of the Greater London Council from 1981 until the council was abolished in 1986, and as Mayor of London from the creation of the office in 2000 until 2008. He served as MP for Brent East from 1987 to 2001.
