If you're watching in broadband, here's how to find your favourite parts of the latest show.

2340 Andrew welcomes you to a look back at a political week dominated by the Conservative Party Conference in Bournemouth, and welcomes his pals Diane Abbott and Michael Portillo.

2342 The first appearance this week of our Gordon puppet, voiced by Rory Bremner.

2343 After his first conference as leader, is Mr Cameron the darling of each and every Conservative? Not quite. Peter Hitchens from the Mail on Sunday gives us his Take Of The Week.

GORDON THE PUPPET...

2356 The first rule of media management at a party conference is keep the hacks happy with some red meat. Telling them to be patient and wait a year or two for some real policies is the equivalent of putting them on a vegetarian diet. So it was hardly surprising that the starving media, driven wild with hunger, hounded and hunted down that succulent Tory beast, Boris Johnson - the only man brave enough to take on Jamie Oliver and support these brave mums pushing pies through the railings of our schools. Who better, we thought, to do our Round Up?

0009 Another look at the puppet.

0010 We put class in the Spotlight with the help of ennobled actor Michael Gambon.

Times are taken from our running order - times in your broadband player may be slightly different, but should be near enough to help you find your favourite bits.
