The first volume of Labour MP Tony Benn's behind the scenes revelations first broadcast on BBC radio 4

'Irresistible fly-on-the-wall history as it actually happens. ' The Observer

Late each night for over twenty-five years, the Labour MP and former Secretary of State Tony Benn sat alone and dictated onto tape his account of daily events at the heart of government. The immediacy, passion and mood of those recordings is striking, as he unburdens himself of the pressure and stress, and the trials and tribulations, of government and opposition - with accounts veering from anecdotal to almost confessional.

Events recalled in the first of these unique and remarkable recordings - originally broadcast on BBC Radio 4 - include Harold Wilson's surprise resignation in 1976, the potentially catastrophic 1977 strike at Windscale, the year-long miners' strike in 1984, and the general election in 1992.

The sleeve notes include a foreword by Tony Benn , and give further background detail to these historic recordings.
