The channel is not designed to appeal to the majority of the public, in the same way that Hansard (the written record of Parliament) is not designed to be a best-seller. It is one of those services which is there to make politics accessible and it means that it is available to those that want to see it. Democracy is inevitably aided by any mechanism which allows any member of the public to watch their elected representatives ... Read the complete review
