"A by-election in the likes of Richmond or Epping Forest will never be quite like a by-election in Govan."

TV The always brilliant TV Cream mail-out points me towards this YouTube channel filled with old election coverage including very rare material from ITV which has presumably never been repeated since transmission. Too much to watch right now, but here's the Glasgow Govan by-election 1988 featuring Kirsty Wark versus Gordon Brown when they were both still in their thirties and Thatcher was still in power.

Gallow Publishing's website reports Haig Gordon's "subsequent broadcasting career went from bad to worse and he now prefers to write books on Galloway".
