TV Cream

A bit of business

Poll to Poll with TV Cream

In the words of that bloke who always closes the Olympic Games, and of Russell T Davies whenever he was asked to describe the latest Dr Who Christmas special, it’s the biggest and best yet.

TV Cream is taking its case to the country in the shape of a quartet of hustings-themed podcasts.

Starting next week there’ll be one to download every week until polling day, each focusing on a memorable year for election watchers – and, perhaps more importantly, for TV election watchers.

There’ll be various features, probes and Stilgoe-sized slices of whimsy contained therein, but there’ll also be a bit of grit in the shape of exclusive contributions from the great David Butler himself, the brainiest man in this or any electorate.

And here, by way of a taste of the podcast proper, is Dr Butler reflecting on the subject of the first podcast: the general election of 1964.
