POLITICS SHOW NORTH WEST
It is home to 6.8m people and a thriving £98bn economy. We have major cities, spectacular countryside, world class sport and a culture grown from a unique blend of history, art and diversity... but you knew that - didn't you?
Governing a region like ours is both an art and a science, and the politics affecting our lives doesn't just happen in Westminster - it happens in town halls, county halls, hospitals, police stations, schools and in our neighbourhoods.
Each week we look at the politics affecting your life right here in the North West - from health to street cleaning. If it affects you - we want to know about it.
Annabel Tiffin presents the Politics Show in the North West... "I originally came to the North West at the best time - 1990, when "Madchester" was in full swing.
"Radio and TV work then took me to the Midlands for a few years, including a short stint with the News Bunny at Live TV!
"But I was always desperate to get back to the region, and joined North West Tonight in 2003 as the producer and presenter of the late news at half ten.
"Handling political heavy weights should be no problem - as out of work I wrestle with two kids and a menagerie of pets!"
"I enjoy good food, good wine and supporting one of the region's biggest football teams - though won't say which one!"
