The Politics Show


The Politics Show

"The Politics Show" is an hour long BBC television programme broadcast in the United Kingdom on Sundays at Midday. It was launched in 2003 and was originally presented by Jeremy Vine, now a BBC Radio 2 and "Panorama" presenter. It contains reports on the big political stories of the week as well as analysing the way these stories will affect people all over the country. It also features interviews with senior politicians about current issues. The programme is usually presented by BBC News presenter Jon Sopel, who replaced Vine in September 2005 [ [http://www.bbc.co.uk/pressoffice/pressreleases/stories/2005/06_june/03/sopel.shtml Jon Sopel to present Politics Show] BBC Press Office] . Tim Donovan often presents in Sopel's absence. The show is off air at several points during the year, as Parliament is not always sitting.

At 12:00 the programme features a short summary of the main news headlines from the national news studio, and at 12:30 there is a twenty minute (One hour in Scotland) section, fronted by a different presenter for each region, looking into how political stories affect the local area. The latest version of the programme can be watched at any time through the BBC website, although since this is currently a trial the service is not available to all areas.
