Daily: YOU’RE LISTENING TO THE STREETS – Inside ‘Anywhere But Westminster' with John Harris and John Domokos

The video series Anywhere But Westminster by John Harris and John Domokos is one of the Guardian’s most acclaimed strands and now a winner of the Orwell Prize. What makes it work? The Two Johns tell Dorian Lynskey about why we need more reportage and fewer pundits, how they talk to real voters without falling into vox pop stereotypes, the value of uncertainty… and why we are all Walsall now. 

“I cried on camera when a group of Liverpool mums described life without a Sure Start Centre.” – John Harris 

“We ask people about their lives, not who they're going to vote for.” – John Domokos

“The world is full of commentary and punditry. To increase knowledge, you have to report.” – John Harris

“I can't remember what it was like to be certain of stuff… Making this series has  changed my mind and values.” – John Domokos

“Although I’ll never vote Conservative in my life, now I understand why people do.” – John Harris

Presented by Dorian Lynskey. Produced by Andrew Harrison. Assistant producers: Jelena Sofronijevic and Jacob Archbold. Music by Kenny Dickinson. Audio production by Alex Rees. THE BUNKER is a Podmasters Production
