Election archive moments of politicians and public

With General Election polls so close, every scandal, slip of the tongue and embarrassing moment can be used by opponents hoping these can affect the way people vote on 7 May.

In a Daily Politics film, Giles Dilnot looks into the news archives to find the moments some political parties may wish had never have happened - at least on camera - when they meet the public.

It features footage of John Major, Margaret Thatcher, John Prescott, Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, Martin Bell, Neil Hamilton, Charles Kennedy and Kenny Everett.
