Registration URL

John Bercow, House of Commons Speaker

An ambassador for modern democracy - John Bercow

Holding one of the world’s most ancient offices, the 157th Speaker of the House of Commons is anything but traditional. With 20 years’ experience in key positions at the heart of UK politics, there are few more knowledgeable on life inside Westminster. An active reformer, John Bercow’s modernisation of the archaic procedures of this historic institution has helped bring the House into the 21st century.

Join John as he explores the roles of the Speaker and Parliament – and see him become quizmaster extraordinaire as Nottingham's most erudite politicians battle our brainiest University professors in a very special edition of University Challenge.
