Programme alert: 'A Marriage Made in Portsmouth' – 9pm tonight

by Stephen Tall on March 8, 2008

Can’t get to conference, but in the mood for some Saturday night Lib Demmery? At the conference, and desperate to avoid the bar?

Then why not switch on the telly, and tune to the BBC Parliament channel at 9 pm tonight, Saturday 8th March, when you can watch A Marriage Made in Portsmouth, a documentary to mark 20 years since the Liberal/SDP merger. The programme combines archive footage of the merger process, as well as contemporary interviews with some of the key players, such as Lord Steel, Baroness Williams and Lord Maclennan.

It is broadcast Saturday night at 9pm on BBC Parliament, and is due to be repeated over the Easter period.
