Since the launch of the Politics Show Peter Henley has been the man on the spot in the South. He got a taste for politics as a radio reporter in the Thames Valley covering Margaret Thatcher's last days as Prime Minister.
Peter also filmed in Saudi Arabia during the Gulf War of 1992.
High politics has its lighter side too.
Peter was flamboyant Conservative MP Boris Johnson's nemesis when he made unguarded comments about the government's healthy eating plans at the Party's conference.
"My report went around the world," Peter says, "I ended up feeling rather sorry for Boris, he was under siege from the media, but it shows how fast a political story can move."
Peter is pleased to be more rooted to home in the New Forest with wife Sam, who's a teacher, and their three boys, dog, cat and guinea pig.
The youngest boy, Toby, is not so sure. In order that Peter can do radio interviews from home, Toby has been pushed out of his bedroom, poor lad!
