'Never did Kinnock seek any editorial control, he didn't ask to see the programmes beforehand and he never recommended who to talk to. I was pleased and probably surprised by this.'
Edward Morgan, producer of Kinnock: the Inside Story (Sun ITV), on approaches to political biography: 'There's a four-part series on Thatcher coming up on BBC in which I hear she will be talking straight to camera. That would be like a party political broadcast, there's no one challenging; I think you have to filter what a politician says. We have a commentary which makes it an assessment, not an autobiography, and then there's other people's comments, which give the political reality texture.
