Michael Crick on Tales from the Lobby

Up in his attic, Michael Crick found a tape from 1981 called the Lobbyists.
Together with producer Miles Warde, he tracks down two lobbyists from that programme - Frank Field MP and Lord Faulkner. Frank Field reveals the extraordinary events behind the introduction of Child Benefit; and Richard Faulkner explains the 1979 campaign to save the Spot the Ball competition.
