Make the Politician Work

MAKE THE POLITICIAN WORK takes seven of our well-known politicians to the coalface in a positive and fascinating new commissioned for prime-time on TV1. Whist politicians make decisions that affect our everyday lives, this series places them on the frontline so they can see for themselves just how their portfolio or policy operates at ground level.

The Minister of Social Development working in a soup kitchen, the former Minister of Labour picking Asparagus and the Associate Minister of Education working as a teacher’s aide. What do they see? How do they feel? Will their observations change the way they govern the country?

The show is simply an Intrepid Journey into their heartland, their constituency and their portfolio. It’s not a dry, political series, but a light hearted attempt to find out who the person is behind the policy.
