About This Week

This Week team - Diane is still with us in spirit - if not on our sofa

For the hottest political gossip on TV, kick back and enjoy the late night vibe of BBC One's award-winning This Week.

Punchy, irreverent, satirical: This Week brings you the big political stories of the week with a twist.

Squeezing together on our cosy sofa, Michael Portillo and a Labour guest join Andrew Neil to debate the top topics in Westminster and the wider world.

Every week, we ask a famous name for their Take Of The Week. Hear Bruce Forsyth on US politics or Johnny Vegas on class. It's the show where Ulrika Jonsson trades places with David Hockney. You can browse through our guests past and present in the Guest Gallery.

Politics with attitude

This Week Guest Gallery

And for an alternative Round Up of the week's political highs and lows, don't miss the insights of our team of experts, commentators and pundits.

We round off each show by putting our Spotlight on one of the issues behind the news, with the help of another special guest.

This Week gives you politics with attitude and without the spin. Whether you've just rolled in from the pub or had a tough day at the office, tuck up and tune in for the edgiest political show on TV.

This Week is broadcast on BBC One after Question Time, from 2335 to 0020 most Thursdays, or often a little later in Wales and Northern Ireland.

For those who miss it, there's a repeat on BBC Parliament at 1800 on Fridays, or you can catch it anytime on BBC iPlayer for seven days after transmission.

You can now register to receive the weekly This Week email which is sent out on Thursday mornings setting our plans for that evening's programme.

Thursdays, 2335-0020, BBC One
