TRAILER: Claptrap - the movie

This month, it's a quarter of a century since Granada Television broadcast Claptrap, a World in Action documentary that showed how a woman with no previous experience of public speaking was coached to win a standing ovation at a political party conference.

Between now and the 25th anniversary on 23rd September, I'll be doing some nostalgic blogging on the background to the book Our Masters' Voices, on which the programme was based, the making of the programme itself and what happened after that.

As a trailer to the main film that will be kicking off the Claptrap season, you can watch a short clip from Ann Brennan's speech HERE.
