The political parties were asked by BBC News School Report to create party political broadcasts for young people aged from 11 to 16.

This age group is not voting in the general election on 7 May - but they are voters of the future.

Several political parties say they want the voting age to be lowered to 16.

The parties each made a short film, to help students think and learn more about democracy and politics.

The Conservatives, the Green Party, Labour, the Liberal Democrats, Plaid Cymru and the Scottish National Party all took part.

The Northern Ireland parties and UKIP were also approached but did not take part.

Here are the parties' videos, in alphabetical order:
