5 Live’s Ballot Box Brigade

“MPs tend to love the sound of their own voices but now we’ve given listeners the chance to be vocal. Some of them could even give me a run for their money!”

Jenny Éclair, Presenter of Ballot Box Brigade


5 Live’s Ballot Box Brigade was a unique programme where ordinary voters gave a real insight into the 2015 General Election.


- 1 x 60 minute broadcast


BBC Radio 5 Live's selected listeners were tasked with recording their views during the campaign and passed judgement on the debates, interviews, policy announcements, and so on in the weeks running up to the election.

Presented by Jenny Éclair, you’ll hear the honest, and sometimes irreverent, reactions of our Ballot Box Brigade as the campaign unfolded.

Commissioning Editor of BBC Radio 5 live, Richard Maddock sais: “5 live’s Ballot Box Brigade will provide an alternative view of the election campaign, focusing on it through the eyes and ears of our listeners. We wanted to hear about what people really thought of MPs and key election issues, from the serious to the ridiculous. Jenny’s sense of mischief and fun, combined with her own strong views, makes her the perfect host.”
