Over the past decade, it’s almost been a full-time job trying to keep up with the latest happenings in British Politics. From snap elections to Brexit negotiations, navigating a global pandemic to seemingly endless political scandals emerging from behind Parliament doors, you can be forgiven for falling behind. So instead of focusing on the past, we’re looking forward to ask what might be next for British Politics?
BBC political correspondent Carole Walker lifts the lid on the secretive world of the parliamentary Lobby, from its conception to the present day, revealing what really happens behind the closed doors of power. Phil Tinline, BBC Radio 4 producer and journalist, guides us through the last century of British politics, as its lurched from crisis to crisis, and what this means for our current age of upheaval. Our final speaker, Lord Peter Ricketts, has been at the heart of Britain’s foreign policy for more than 30 years, discusses Britain’s place in the world today and explores how the country can move forward.
Chaired by broadcast journalist Gerry Foley.
