Over the years, the frequency of my tv interventions has been highly correlated with the Euro Crisis’ above-the-surface intensity. This page offers links to some of them.

Featured videos: The two featured videos that I selected for this page are: (a) a mini documentary on the Euro Crisis that I wrote and presented for Channel 4 and (b) a far-ranging interview with Christian Amanpour on CNN International. 

Scroll below the two featured videos that follow for the comprehensive list of links (last updated October 2013):
