Edinburgh Does…Judge Rinder

Criminal barrister Robert Rinder, best known for his popular ITV daytime show Judge Rinder is to be the arbitrator of TV industry battles at this year’s TV Festival.

No stranger to conflict, ITV’s Judge Rinder will preside over a session which pits leading figures against each other to debate some of TV’s hottest topics.  Rinder will have his gavel at the ready to rule over such issues as ‘TV’s run out of new entertainment hits – guilty or innocent?’ and ‘Television stands accused of being out of touch with viewers in post-Brexit Britain.’
