Welcome to Prime Ministerial. In each episode Jonn Elledge and Stephen Bush will look at the legacy of the previous six prime ministers and ask whether they achieved success on their own terms.

This episode focuses on Gordon Brown. When the former chancellor of the exchequer took office, he emphasised his breach with his predecessor Tony Blair. Despite a promising start, his popularity ratings crumbled when the country was plunged into financial crisis. Brown left office three years into the job.

Stephen and Jonn speak to the political economist Ann Pettifor and Stewart Wood, a former adviser to Gordon Brown.

Produced by Adrian Bradley and May Robson, with thanks to Caroline Crampton and Nick Hilton.
