Amol Rajan Interviews

Today Friday 3 February, 2023, there is a new episode of Amol Rajan Interviews.

Bill Gates Amol Rajan interviews the colossus of technology, Bill Gates, on a wide range of topics.

Microsoft’s Bill Gates has vowed to donate the vast bulk of his fortune to charity through the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. His ultimate goal is to find answers to what he sees as humanity’s most pressing issues. However, Gates has also been the subject of controversy in more recent years.

Rajan goes to a rural area outside of Nairobi, Kenya, where Gates is funding local farms and hospitals to learn more about the true identity of the man behind all the money.

Here, Rajan gets to know Gates on a more personal level as he probes the tech magnate for insight into his motivations by directly questioning him on some of the obstacles Gates has experienced over the years. The real cost of his power, influence, and fortune are also investigated, as is the motivation behind the conspiracy theorists’ fixation on him.

They talk about his passions for climate change and global health, but also his upbringing, the effects of his early therapy, his opinions on Elon Musk and Donald Trump, the polarisation of US politics, rumours of past affairs, and his greatest concerns.

Airdate: Friday 3 February, 2023 at 19:30 on BBC Two

Season 2023 Episode 1

Amol Rajan, the BBC’s media editor, interviews the global, era-defining pioneers, leaders and maverick thinkers who are shaping our rapidly changing 21st-century world.
