Census: Konnie Huq on immigration and ethnic minorities on TV

Former Blue Peter presenter Konnie Huq said there was a lot of interest when she was hired as the first Asian presenter of the children's show.

She debated the census figures - and immigration numbers and policies - with Andrew Neil, Alan Johnson and Michael Portillo.

The full programme can be seen by UK viewers on iPlayer for 12 months.
