The magic number.

by Syd Briscoe

BBC: “Number 10” - 30s

With a general election looming and spats between parties getting uglier by the day, the BBC promise to keep more than just one Number 10 in mind. Thus, a diverse bunch of residents are shown standing in front of their own houses, representing the population for whom all the political infighting is academic: they just want their voices heard.

It's an effective way to draw attention to the media giant's avowed neutrality, whilst all highlighting the very different circumstances people will be choosing their vote in. Whether rural or urban, rich or poor, the battle for PM rests on the feelings of ordinary people from all over the nation - and there are plenty to keep nervy candidates on their toes.
