BBC to re-run 2010 General Election coverage

BBC Parliament is to re-run the corporation's coverage of the 2010 General Election next month.

BBC Parliament will air the full coverage of the 2010 General Election to mark its 10-year anniversary this month.

The election brought an end to Gordon Brown's time in office and led to David Cameron taking over as Prime Minister after his Conservative party agreed to form a coalition government with the Liberal Democrats.

The BBC's coverage of election night, anchored by David Dimbleby, will re-air in real time on BBC Parliament on Friday, May 8.

The broadcast will begin at 9.55am - the original began at 9.55pm - and will run through until midnight.

Other presenters on the show included Jeremy Paxman, Andrew Neil, Emily Maitlis, Fiona Bruce and Jeremy Vine.

BBC Parliament has form in rebroadcasting past General Election coverage in recent years, all the way back to the first ever televised results show in 1955.
