The Heckler Episode 1 of 4

A quirky, irreverent guide to the weekly events of the election. As the campaign begins, Gordon Brown proclaims that he's from a middle class family, while David Cameron insists that it's all about the 'great ignored'. What does it all mean? 'The Heckler' explores the nature of political reality in a surreal campaign. with one of Britain's leading philospophers, Alain de Botton, and ponders what the public really want from next week's Prime Ministerial debate with football pundit Hunter Davies and TV soapwatcher Gareth McClean. Plus why the parties' slogans sound so familiar, and how to make sense of the blizzard of economic statistics swirling around the campaign. Presented by Clive Anderson, without any loose ends or unreliable evidence.

Producers: Peter Mulligan / Leala Padmanabhan.

Editor: Martin Rosenbaum.
