BBC iPlayer TV doesn't work abroad, although radio does. Is it on YouTube? I've forgotten.
Yes, it is on YouTube. That's what prompted me to create this thread. I believe 1966 is the only footage yet to be posted on YouTube. I'd imagine we'll have to wait until March 2016 before BBC Parliament show it again.
Amusing that they were assuming that the Liberal Party would end up with a maximum of 6 or 7 seats. The Liberal gains of Caithness & Sutherland, Ross & Cromarty and Inverness & Skye must have been completely or mostly unexpected. To be fair, they had swings of 10% and 16%, and C&S with a Liberal intervention.
Labour governments are always voted in by empty minds, and voted out by empty pockets
Maybe this belongs more in the Useless Facts thread, but David Butler celebrated his 40th birthday two days after the 1964 GE (thus on the same day the final result, in Inverness, was declared) and his 50th came just a week after the second 1974 contest.
Watched the 1970 coverage on YouTube recently, and it was notable how he was almost visibly upset over George Brown's defeat.
"READ THE STANDING ORDERS! READ THEM AND UNDERSTAND THEM!!"
Has anyone put the second day coverage of the 1964 general election on Youtube yet? I must say I find watching these programmes fascinating and oddly thrilling even though one knows the outcome.
The only parallel for me to this is certain films, such as, in the political sphere, All the President's Men. Every time that's on, and I find it when channel hopping, it grips me and I end up watching till the end. And I knew the outcome the first time I saw it, too!
