Do you, Ken? – 2

Living The Dream

(Sky Arts 1, 8pm)

The politician Ken Livingstone and the actor Timothy West seem to agree on everything they discuss – politics, public transport, the difficulty of being in the public eye – but agreement does not make much of a conversation. It is a dull encounter of statements rather than information coming from questions. Each is keen to take the floor, especially the former London mayor. He may have given up standing for office, but he can’t resist grandstanding, and revisits the (albeit impressive) speech he made after the bombing of the capital on July, 2005.
