A quirky, irreverent take on the twists and turns of the election campaign, presented by Hugo Rifkind. David Cameron wants the voters to enjoy a 'good life', but what is it?

David Cameron wants the voters to enjoy a "good life" but what is it? On Campaign Sidebar, Hugo Rifkind explores the history of that concept, from the philosopher Aristotle to the self-sufficient residents of 70s Surbiton. Plus an alleluia chorus in an echo chamber, how an internet "filter bubble" is reshaping our politics, and if your party was a fruit which one would it be? Edgy zeitgeist-smart advice from Perfect Curve, the communications gurus of W1A, on how the parties can brand refresh in the unfolding electoral narrative. Hugo Rifkind casts an irreverent eye over the twists and turns of the election campaign.

Credits: The writers of the Good life were Bob Larbey and John Esmonde. The writers of the Young Ones were Ben Elton, Rik Mayall and Lise Mayer.
