Black Wednesday

Thirty years ago on 16th September 1992, a collapse in the pound sterling forced Britain to withdraw from the ERM. Matt Chorley speaks to the chancellor at the time, Lord Norman Lamont, about why he still thinks it was the right decision and if he still sings in the bath. We also hear from the two political editors of the Times and the Sun, Phil Webster and Trevor Kavanagh, on what it was like covering the story.

Plus Melanie Reid and James Forsyth discuss the Britishness of queuing and what the new Metropolitan Police Commissioner needs to do.
