The video contains over 7 hours of footage of a recent Sky News programme where young members of the public were invited into the studio to grill the leaders of the main UK political parties. The leaders’ responses are, of course, both interesting and very important as the 2015 election gets closer. However, the video shows how programmes like this are constructed to ‘entertain’ and create ‘drama’ for the audience. The observations ‘off camera’ give a clear view of how the professionals think the Q&As are going.
