David Blunkett

Public figures explore their roots, what they've left behind and what they'll never forget. David Blunkett takes political writers Alice Thomson and Rachel Sylvester to Sheffield.

Rachel Sylvester and Alice Thomson meet a public figure to explore the geography of their childhood. In episode one, Lord David Blunkett takes Alice and Rachel to Sheffield. David shows the award-winning interviewing duo the places and buildings he knew as a boy, and discusses how the Labour-voting, South Yorkshire steel city became a symbol of the disenchantment which led to last year's Brexit vote.
Producer: Chris Ledgard.
