It doesn’t take Laura Kuenssberg long to find the words – or rather, word – to describe how the news has changed.

She’s been around to observe first-hand the shifting sands for over two decades. After cutting her teeth at Edinburgh University’s student radio, Kuenssberg was named Most Promising Newcomer by the RTS in the North East and the Borders in 2001. Since then, she’s worked as the BBC’s chief political correspondent and political editor, as well as a spell at ITV as business editor.

Laura Kuenssberg to delve into political chaos for new BBC Two documentary series

As the BBC's political editor from 2015 to 2022, Kuenssberg held a ringside seat for the Brexit referendum, the pandemic, and all the resignations, elections and prorogations the UK has seen throughout the years.

This new series will see her take a look back at the toxicity of the period, both in public and behind the political scenes, and offer her own reflections.
