There was also a programme i remember watching at school which followed some candidates through the parliamentary selection process, it was probably ahead of the 87 election but may have been 92 i guess. It featured cheryl gillan i think unsuccessfully being adopted by a local association. I had forgotten about it until i saw her in parliament a few years later and reconised her. Anyone recall this?
I also recall anthony steen in the 2001 programme telling rachel oliver rather patronisingly after she had lost 'you did very well to get this far'!
That would have been 1992 because Cheryl Gillan was first elected that year.
I am not entirely sure because i think the programme featured her being unsuccessful at the adoption meeting.
