Friday, 13 August

The last eight months in Westminster have been wild. It’s worth a recap. We began the year in lockdown, with the NHS on the brink and the economy shrinking. Now, as Newscast heads off on our summer holidays, Adam and Chris take a trip down memory lane to find out where we’ve got to on some of the biggest talking points of this year, whether it’s the health or economic recovery from the coronavirus, international travel or trade in the post-Brexit world. To help us, we listen to some of the headline political interviews we’ve done from our Westminster studios. We talk business with Liz Truss, get geeky with Ed Miliband, bitchy with Sir Alan Duncan and bougie with interior designer Celia Sawyer, and plenty more. But first, we hear from a special guest about some of his most memorable soundbites of 2021 so far… This episode of Newscast was made by Daniel Wittenberg with Caitlin Hanrahan. The studio manager was Emma Crowe. The editor was Emma Close.
