The intriguing inside story of the relationship between politics and the TV media.
Media coverage of politics has never been more immediate, more intense, or more personal. Last year saw governments collapse across the Middle East, in events documented on Twitter and You Tube hours before the mainstream media started their coverage. The phone hacking scandal placed unprecedented scrutiny on journalistic practices, with the Prime Minster calling for the relationship between politicians and the media to be 'reset'. We have seen the UK's first televised Prime Ministerial debate, the BBC relax restrictions on political broadcasts, and David Cameron forced to publish a full list of his contacts with the media. The focus of politics has shifted firmly from the street corner, to the box in the corner and elsewhere.
In Live From Downing Street, the BBC's Political Editor, Nick Robinson, tells the inside story of the 'troubled marriage' which has forced politicians and broadcasters to live together, rarely in harmony, for over 70 years. With unprecedented access and insight he reveals how the key players, past and present, handle the portrayal of their role in the public eye with varying degrees of success. Coupled with an analysis of how the relationship between politics and instant broadcasting will develop further in the digital world, Live From Downing Street presents a fascinating and important story of politics and the media in our time.

"Sharp-witted, full of surprises and with a great sense of history, Nick Robinson pulls back the curtain on an essential part of the democratic story. For everyone who wants to know more about the long, and sometimes hilarious, mud-wrestle between power and the media - and about the man behind the glasses - this is a must." Andrew Marr "Canny, plain-speaking and fair, Nick Robinson writes as the pentrating insider he is." Matthew Parris "Nick Robinson skips lightly through the great battles between Downing Street and the broadcast media... a fun, well-paced account" Sunday Times "[Robinson] comes across much as he does on television or radio: never at a loss and able to deliver not just the news, but a definitive judgment on it" Financial Times "an intriguing and thoughtful reflection on how politics is reported and the mistakes that are made on both sides when power and the media meet" The Scotsman
