Journalist Will Hutton joined Tony Blair for his final three months in office as prime minister of the UK, gaining unprecedented access to one of the most powerful world leaders, with the prevailing theme being to explore his legacy and how he believes he will be remembered. Tony Blair is the second longest serving Prime Minister in British history, but his popularity had waned in the years since he won a huge majority in 1997 with his ‘New Labour’ brand.

This one hour long documentary was produced by the BBC and broadcast in 2007. Tony Blair’s stock has sunk even further in the years since leaving office, with various inquiries about the Iraq War seriously damaging his profile. Also well worth a watch is the two part 2007 documentary by Channel 4, The Rise and Fall of Tony Blair.
