I remember watching this ten years ago today as an eighteen year old, back when it was first repeated on BBC Parliament. I was fascinated about all the talk of "recession" and felt glad we lived in a world where such worries were a thing of the past...something that didn't last long!
Wonder what the schedule for the next few years will be...any chance of the 2005 and 2010 elections any time soon (neither repeated since the week of their original transmissions), or are they still too recent to be seen as historically interesting? Both had plenty of notable moments - 2005 may have had less of a significant result as 2010, but featured Reg Keys, Paxman vs. Galloway and plenty of post-Iraq talk. Also very much an end of an era election - last appearance of Peter Snow (the Dimbleby/Snow/Paxman lineup is for me the quintessential election trio), the
theme, and generally the last to predate social media as we know it today. Would be good to see it again but since elections have been fixed to every five years it's hard to organise an 'anniversary' airing, as inevitably it will be too close to a real one.
