Highly recommended

Nick Robinson gives a great weekly take on the behind the scenes manoeuvrings at Westminster while also doing a good job of teasing out the more human side of his guests.

Refreshing

Great to hear thoughtful, calm political discourse without the usual descent into soundbites. Interesting guests and informed thinking.

Away from the screech.

Always interesting. And it is a welcome break from frantic attempts at point scoring against a politician parking the bus which is the norm for broadcast political interviews.
