Former Presenters/Reporters[edit]

Format[edit]

The programme starts off every week with a "week that was" style run-through of the main political events that week. The presenter will then introduce the panel (usually made up of Arseneau and a political observer and a former politician) Following that Dann will conduct an interview with a politician (either in the studio or on location) and the presenter will lead the panel through a discussion about the responses the interviewee gave. After an ad break the presenter will conduct a more relaxed interview with a former politician or political observer, with the presenter again leading the panel through discussing what will be the big stories in the week ahead finishing the show.
