2012 Westminster review: Political and economic news


This Week reviews the political news of the year as the cast return to Downturn Abbey and go back over the political headlines of 2012.

Last Christmas, 'Lord' Quentin Letts and his faithful manservant Kevin McGuire were living in a council flat poor, but happy.

They return for a 2012 review and are joined by Nick Watt, Mary Ann Sieghart and John Pienaar, but things are not looking good for Father Christmas.

The Downturn story and the review continues in part two and the full programme can be seen by UK viewers on iPlayer for 12 months.
