Praise for Nick's work :

Andrew Marr describes Nick's book - "Live from Downing Street - the Inside story of power, politics and the media" as "sharp-witted, full of surprises and with a great sense of history, Nick Robinson pulls back the curtain on an essential part of the democratic story. For everyone who wants to know more about the long, and sometimes hilarious, mud-wrestle between power and the media - and about the man behind the glasses - this is a must."

The Guardian, described "Decision Time" which invites policy makers to examine how ideas make their ways through the corridors of power in Whitehall and Westminster, as a "gripping 45-minute conversation'.

"The Street that Cut Everything" - a programme in which residents of a street in Preston, Lancashire had all their council services withdrawn for six weeks as an experiment - was described by the FT as "one of the most important political programmes of recent times"

The Times said that "Your Money and How to Spend It" "achieves something remarkable... (it)" tackles a subject that is vitally important but potentially tedious beyond belief - public finances - and talks about it in a way that is clear, insightful and entertaining. It's precisely the sort of lucid, informative programming that you would associate with Andrew Marr."

"The Prime Ministers" - a series of short radio profiles of some of the most significant occupants of Number 10 - is available on CD and as a download.
