PERCEPTION PANEL
Perception Panel

The Perception Panel measures how you the viewers react to political events - in real time!

We're the first TV programme in the world to do this, and we want you to get involved: call 0800 666 808 for more details, or read on...

We've used our Perception Panel to see what you made of the big conference speeches and we're currently getting your responses to Prime Minister's Questions. To see each Panel, use the drop-down "Previous Panels" box on the right.

Every Wednesday at noon, the opposition leaders and other MPs get the chance to grill the PM in the Commons.

From the comfort of your armchair, you can tell us whether you're loving or hating what the PM and his interrogators are saying -- as they're saying it.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
It couldn't be simpler...

During the run up to PMQs, we'll ask you to use your landline telephone to ring the freephone number 0800 666 808. Then Jenny will ask you a few questions - but she'll go easier on you than she does on our guests!

Which buttons do I press?
Perception Panel
If you like what's said: 5
If you dislike what's said: 8
Phone: 0800 666 808
You tell us a little bit about yourself and then stay on the line. While you watch the debate in the Commons, you push numbers on your telephone keypad to tell us if you're feeling negative or positive about what is being said.

We then frantically crunch the numbers and before the end of the programme, our snazzy graphs show what you made of the exchange.

We'll also ask our political correspondent Jo Coburn to write up a full report for this website, with extra analysis, graphs and clips that we couldn't fit into the live programme.

DOWNLOAD THE PANEL
...and be your own psephologist!

We're now able to offer you the whole Panel for download, so you can choose for yourself which clips to watch and how to split the response.

If you wanted to know what Tory voters made of a certain answer, or how a certain question went down in the Midlands, you can now find out for yourself.

Each week, we'll put up a recording of PMQs, plus all the data from the Perception Panel participants. The files are supplied by our partners at Clickvision - you'll need to unzip the download [advice on unzipping here] and to use Microsoft Excel to see the results. There's more help in the README file you'll be unzipping.

Let us know what you think

We can look forward to some lively PMQs as this parliamentary session goes on, so if you'd like to get involved in telling the Panel your Perceptions, tune in on Wednesdays with your fingers poised over the freephone number: 0800 666 808.
