Clive Anderson presents a quirky, irreverent guide to the events of the election campaign. This week, anyone for tennis? How the hidden rules of English electioneering were revealed in a Wimbledon final. What the politicians really think of the voters they have to woo and flatter, and if we do get a hung parliament, will our leaders be simply too exhausted by all that campaigning to thrash out a deal to run the country?

Plus the author Michael Dobbs sketches out some alternative endings to the story of this campaign ... will the final chapter bring a fairytale ending, a horror-writer's bloodbath, or a cliffhanger, setting up an inevitable sequel?

Producers: Peter Mulligan / Mark D'Arcy / Leala Padmanabhan.

Editor: Martin Rosenbaum.

A quirky, irreverent guide to the weekly events of the election.

As the campaign begins, Gordon Brown proclaims that he's from a middle class family while David Cameron insists that it's all about the 'great ignored'.

What does it all mean? 'The Heckler' explores the nature of political reality - by shouting awkward questions from the crowd at the passing spectacle.

Presented by Clive Anderson, without any loose ends or unreliable evidence.

The Heckler is on BBC Radio 4 at 11.00 am on Saturday mornings during the campaign.
