Politics, whether local, national or international affects us all.
And that is what the Politics Show is all about - addressing those issues.
Every Sunday Jon Sopel presents reports and interviews on the developments which are making news at a national level.
Then 20 minutes of the programme are dedicated to our part of the UK - showing how political issues affect the West Midlands region.
IT'S YOUR SHOW
Live guests from across the political spectrum join us live each week at our Mailbox studios in Birmingham.
Live studio debate. Patrick Burns and guests
Our reporters are also out in the field - sometimes quite literally - at outside broadcasts questioning those at the heart of local decision making.
Your views are also an important ingredient in the mix.
We want to hear from you about the questions you want answering and your comments on the week's hot topics.
