CNBC Meets: Boris Johnson, part one
In April's edition of CNBC Meets, Tania Bryer gets up close and personal with the charismatic London Mayor Boris Johnson.
Bryer gains a rare, personal insight into Johnson's colorful upbringing and the competitive family that helped drive him to success. He dispels the myth of any privileged upbringing and tells of how winning a scholarship to Eton and his time at Oxford University shaped his political ideals.
Johnson explains what compelled him to switch careers from editing the Spectator to becoming an MP, before reaching City Hall with his defeat of Ken Livingstone in 2008. The Mayor, who won re-election last year, also discusses his greatest triumph to date: the successful London 2012 Olympic Games.
