Here's my selection of the best bits of video from today's political broadcasting.
John Bercow on Andrew Marr
The most thankless task in politics at the moment must be taking charge of reforming MPs expenses after the endless swirl of scandal over the summer.
A lot rests on the shoulders of the Speaker, John Bercow.
With talk of retreats and resistance to change, the Speaker, in one of his first televised interviews since taking over told Andrew Marr, well Sophie Raworth actually, but let's not get hung up over personalities - there must be no backsliding on Sir Christopher Kelly's proposals.
John Bercow says it would be a mistake to try to stick with the current system
Lord Adonis on the Politics Show
Here on the Politics Show we had Lord Adonis, the Transport Secretary.
He was here ostensibly to speak about plans for high speed rail - but we also touched on the issue of Gordon Brown's personality, in the week when the prime minister conceded that he was a shy man.
A lot of commentators have suggested that Mr Brown has become a figure of pity. I wondered whether it was worse to be hated or pitied as a politician.
Lord Adonis said he thought the prime minister was widely seen as doing 'a good and serious job'.
Ed Balls on Sky News with Adam Boulton
It's fascinating at the moment whenever the government comes up with a plan to make a minor dent in the deficit, so a group rises up to protest - and often amid the howls comes a government climbdown.
And so it would seem again with the government's plans to scrap childcare vouchers. Of course it will be an announcement for the Chancellor, as it is a spending issue.
But listen to Ed Balls on Sky with Adam Boulton - he comes pretty close to announcing the U turn himself.
Ed Balls says it was good the government was listening
Jeremy Hunt on Sky News with Adam Boulton
Shadow Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt has descried as "absolute nonsense" claims that they have formed a pact with News International.
Lord Mandelson has claimed the Tories had "effectively formed a contract" with Rupert Murdoch.
Shadow culture secretary says allegation is 'improper'
The 'Turnip Taleban' on the Politics Show
One story which we covered here on the Politics Show is unashamedly local, but could have big reverberations for David Cameron's new, more tolerant, socially liberal Conservative Party.
Elizabeth Truss was an A-lister and won the selection meeting for the plum seat of Norfolk South West. But the odd skeleton has fallen from her closet (an affair some years ago with a Tory MP) and all hell has broken loose as the locals say she has to go.
We talked to one of the members of the so-called Turnip Taleban.
Sir Jeremy Bagge says he stands for democracy
