This week we've had quite a lineup of guests on 18DoughtyStreet - David Davis, Sayeeda Warsi, Nick Clegg, Paul Rowen, Mark Francois, Damian Green, Professor Peter Hennessy and Nigel Lawson. And next week we've got Chris Mullin, Andrew Macinlay, David Mundell and Patrick Mercer among others.
If you have an hour to spare over the weekend we're replaying the hour long one to one interview with Peter Hennessy. He really is a fascinating man and talks so knowedgeably and entertainingly about political history. He's got some real criticism of the Blair regime. We talk about his book HAVING IT SO GOOD: BRITAIN IN THE 1950s and the current state of government. He's got some fantastically insightful and amusing anecdotes. To me, this kind of interview is what 18DoughtyStreet is all about. Click HERE to watch the programme. It takes about 20 seconds to start.
UPDATE: Labour blogger Will Parbury emailed me to say this: "Watching you on 18 Doughty Street now and finding your discussion absolutely fascinating. It would be good if we made people watch this before getting the right to vote. I find it hard to imagine the BBC getting such an educated guest or presenter on for this amount of time."
