Politics Live is a BBC Television political programme which launched on 3 September 2018. It is presented by Andrew Neil and Jo Coburn. The series replaces the Daily Politics which ran in the same time-slot until July 2018. In the announcement, the BBC stated that the new series "will offer viewers a fast-moving, conversational show, featuring a blend of political interviews, discussion and video content designed to be shared digitally, ensuring Politics Live connects with the lives of people around the country."[1] Coburn and Neil include live coverage of Prime Minister's Questions.

The show is not broadcast during weekends, Christmas and New year holidays, Easter holidays, and summer holidays. It can also be absent when parliament is not in session or when there's a Queen's Speech.
