Abstract

Journalists like to think they are writing the first draft of history but we find it much harder to do the second re-write. The Blair Years on BBC TV is the first on-screen interview of any substance with the former Prime Minister since he left office, looking back at his decade in power. It’s always fun to watch the body-language but it was remarkably uninsightful, not because of a failure of the journalism but simply because it is too early.
