TRAVELS IN TRUMPLAND

 

"a Lycra-clad quest to understand the US" The Guardian

"There are some things you never, ever want to see again. Ed Balls in a leotard is certainly one. But, aesthetics aside, the former shadow chancellors venture into the howling, moronically fake sport that is American wrestling... made its point well." The Telegraph

" 'A second Trump presential term is a real possibility': Ed Balls visits the deep south to meet Donald Trump's core voters" Radio Times

“In Travels in Trumpland, Balls wandered, with empathy and ease and caustic intelligence, through parts of the working-class south, looking, crucially, not for Hillary’s “basket of deplorables” but for the human voters behind that electoral earthquake.... Ed Balls arguably helped serve up as trenchant an analysis as anything we’ve seen”
The Observer

“Balls approaches controversial and raw issues with sensitivity, not least during a moving segment in which he breakfasts with a survivor of the Parkland shooting. These poignant moments are offset by the continued memeification of the former MP — a clip of him taking part in a dance-off at a gay bar will no doubt be a fillip to his bizarre cult status.”
Financial Times

“Travels In Trumpland is some damn fine television. Episode two was every bit as enthralling, entertaining and educating as the first.” Adam Hills

 

eD'S dREAM DINNER PARTY

Ed's Dream Dinner Party

Ed Balls hosts a gathering with a twist. All his guests are from beyond the grave, longtime heroes brought back to life by the wonders of the radio archive.

Ed is joined by former chancellor Denis Healey, comedy legend Les Dawson, feminist pioneer Nancy Astor, Hollywood great Danny Kaye and others, for half an hour of mesmerising and unexpected conversation. They talk with him and with each other about everything from politics to cookery and from playing the piano to overcoming insecurity - illuminating a series of great lives, as well as the triumphs and vulnerabilities of a man who has gone from suffering rejection at the ballot box to becoming an unlikely national treasure via the Strictly dance floor.
