A review of Coalition, first broadcast on Channel 4, 28th March 2015.
A long review of this Channel 4 docudrama that looks at the political machinations that surrounded the creation of the Conservative-Liberal Democrat coalition in the five days following the 2010 general election. The object here is to assess the degree to which the programme was good history, or the degree to which it sacrificed historical accuracy for dramatic impact. The review can be read here.
A few bits and bobs that maybe of interest this week. The listings can be found on the TV and Radio page.
A round up what the broadcast media would have us think contemporary British history is this week. A thin week dominated by surveillance and double agents in the Cold War. And Masterchef. This can be found on the TV and Radio page.
Quite a slim offering this week foe couch historians. For a listing of programmes relevant to contemporary British history his week see the list on the TV and Radio listing page.
