Mark D’Arcy recently retired after spending 21 years covering events at Westminster for the BBC. During that time he built up an unparalleled knowledge of the institution, its procedures and dynamics, with insider access to innumerable key players and a ringside seat at important political moments large and small. This webinar discussed his key reflections on parliament and parliamentary journalism, and how they have changed in the last two decades.
