"News is what's new, what's different, what's remarkable."
- Nick Robinson, BBC

Lord Soley turns the tables on Nick Robinson, the BBC's political correspondent, quizzing him on the impact of 24-hour media on politics, parliamentarians and the public's perception of Parliament.

Listen to Nick Robinson's views on the media's influence and hear his points on issues including:

  • Is 24-hour news good for politics?

  • Are we excluding the public from political debate?

  • Does negative news put people off politics?

  • How do you find out about issues affecting you, and how can politicians and the media ensure people feel engaged with and able to influence Parliament and the political process?

This recording is 10 minutes long.
