In 2000, the then BBC Director General Greg Dyke ordered a review of political output from BBC, which was carried out by Fran Unsworth, and led to a major overhaul of political output in 2003. A number of flagship programmes were axed including On the Record, Despatch Box and Westminster Live and replaced with a new raft of programmes, including the Daily Politics and The Politics Show.
In October 2011 it was announced that from 9 January 2012 the Daily Politics would be relaunched broadcasting six days a week (Daily Politics - Monday to Friday and the Sunday Politics at the weekends). The duration of the Daily Politics was extended from 30 to 60 minutes on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, remaining at 90 minutes on Wednesdays. The Sunday Politics would become a weekend edition of the Daily Politics presented by Andrew Neil and replacing The Politics Show, which ended in December 2011.

“The thing that struck me forcefully was the feeling of great age about the place. Standing on that old parade ground, which is now a cricket field, I could feel the dead generations crowding me. Here was the oldest settlement of freedmen in the Western world, no doubt. Men who had thrown off the bands of slavery by their own courage and ingenuity. The courage and daring of the Maroons strike like a purple beam across the history of Jamaica.”
