VETERAN politician Tony Benn turns the tables on those who, over the years,have been more than responsible for questioning some of his motives during decades of a Parliamentary career.

Benn's experience as an MP is almost legendary, as is his stand on controversial issues, such as support for the last miners' strike, and his opposition to the war in Iraq.

But it his experience in political life that gives him the authority to question the likes of Jeremy Paxman, John Humphrys, Jon Snow, and Nick Robinson.

Benn listens to the interviewers, but doesn't waste an opportunity to make sure that his own opinions come through, too. But we would not expected anything else from a man who has played such a leading role in politics.
