9780857500007: Live From Downing Street

The Inside Story of Politics, Power and the Media.
     The relationship between those who wield power and those whose job it is to tell us what they are doing has always been fraught with tension. Politicians now expect to be on camera and facing aggressive questions from the moment they open their front door to the moment they return home at night. Everything they say and do is instantly broadcast and dissected on 24-hour rolling news channels, blogs and Twitter.

     It was not always this way. Live from Downing Street takes us on an absorbing journey through the hard-fought battles for the right to tell the public about the decisions taken on their behalf. Parliament once imprisoned those who dared to report what MPs had said. Broadcasters used to be banned by law from debating anything newsworthy and even from covering elections. Since that censorship ended, the two sides have clashed repeatedly.

     We follow the fluctuations of the power struggle from Walpole to modern times, dwelling in fascinating detail on those who fought back -- Churchill, Wilson, Thatcher and Blair. At the same time we learn of the emergence of the equally charismatic key players from radio and television: the Dimblebys, Day, Frost, Walden, Paxman and Humphrys.

     Nick Robinson provides a colourful and personal examination of what life is like as the BBC's Political Editor -- a role described in a report for the White House as 'the most important job in British political journalism'. Peppered with informative but witty anecdotes, his account reveals his own considered view of the controversial issue of impartial reporting. Live from Downing Street is a gripping story written by someone uniquely placed to add his own perceptive insights and observations.

About the Author:

NICK ROBINSON studied Politics, Philosophy and Economics at Oxford before joining the BBC in 1986. After a decade working behind the cameras -- as a producer on programmes ranging from Crimewatch to On the Record and Panorama -- he became a reporter and presenter. He is the only person to have been Political Editor of both ITV News and now BBC News -- a job he has held since August 2005. As well as appearing on TV and radio he writes an award winning blog. Nick lives in North London with his wife and three children.

Review:

"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 penetrating 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
