Dennis Skinner film director on Nature of the Beast

A film director has been given rare access to follow Dennis Skinner for two years to make a documentary.

Daniel Draper, who has made Nature of the Beast, told Daily Politics presenter Jo Coburn it was "fair criticism" for some who claimed he was guilty of hero-worshipping the Bolsover MP.

Studio guests Conservative MP Kwasi Kwarteng and Labour MP Anneliese Dodds also gave their thoughts on the long-serving, legendary Labour veteran.
