Dominic is a columnist for the Daily Mail and BBC History, reviews books for the Sunday Times and has presented numerous Radio 4 documentaries, notably a 15-part history of the Post Office. His BBC Two television series The 70s, adapted from his books, was broadcast in 2012, and his new series on Britain in the Cold War will be screened in 2013. He is currently working on a new book on the early 1980s, and is a visiting professor at King’s College London.
