As Boris Johnson fights for his premiership, Britain's pre-eminent political interviewer Andrew Neil is on the inside track of Conservative Party turmoil.
Andrew asks: is this all of Boris Johnson’s own making? From the Owen Patterson debacle, to fancy wallpaper and the infamous, headline-grabbing parties, Andrew uses his unique access to Conservative MPs to take us inside the biggest leadership crisis the country has faced since the fall of Margaret Thatcher.
With exclusive access, Andrew speaks to the key players as events unfold, including Lord Frost, Red Wall MP Lee Anderson and David Davis, who all confide in Andrew as Boris fights for his political life. He will explore if Boris Johnson, the great political survivor, is now finished.
Boris Johnson: Has He Run Out of Road? commissioned for Channel 4 by Louisa Compton, Head of News and Current Affairs and Specialist Factual and Sport. The documentary is produced by Rogan Productions and is directed by Simon Gilchrist, produced by Claire Kavanagh and executive produced by James Rogan.
Andrew Neil said: “It’s the biggest leadership in crisis in three decades and we have a ringside seat.”
Louisa Compton added: “With Boris Johnson’s future as UK Prime Minister seemingly hanging on a knife edge – who better to examine how we got here and what could happen next than Britain’s leading political journalist Andrew Neil. This timely film underlies the Channel’s commitment to producing distinctive, thought-provoking and outstanding journalism. “
Simon Gilchrist, Director continued: “It's been a tremendous privilege following Andrew Neil, one of Britain's greatest journalists, as he covers the most extraordinary and dynamic political story of our times. It's not often one gets access to the key players within a political party as it tries to decide whether or not to depose the Prime Minister."
