Intelligence Squared takes you to the heart of the issues and the arguments that matter, in the company of some of the world's sharpest minds and most exciting orators.

Whereas most broadcasters create debates specifically for television, Intelligence Squared film live debates as they happen.

Past debates have included "George W Bush is the worst American President for the past fifty years", featuring Karl Rove, "The Catholic Church is a force for good in the world", opposed by Stephen Fry and Christopher Hitchens, and Tariq Ramadan arguing that "Europe is failing its Muslims".
