While Labour is struggling to balance the books, record amounts of donations have swollen the Tory party's bank balance and this year's conference is the first time in 10 years that they have secured more corporate sponsors than Labour.
Dispatches investigates the wealthy donors backing Cameron, what that says about Cameron's Conservatives and the political significance of their financial clout.
Dispatches reporter Antony Barnett investigates the funding of the Tories under Cameron and examines how the party is using its newfound resources to ensure its leader becomes the next Prime Minister. Barnett examines how funds are being ploughed into marginal seats that hold the key to a Cameron victory and his investigation raises fresh questions about some of the party's largest backers. Barnett also scrutinises David Cameron's promises of "openness and transparency," with the methods the Tory leader is using to attract donations.
