Latest Episodes

21. Checkmate at Chequers

After months of talks, haggling and negotiations, the Prime Minister invited the entire cabinet to her country retreat in Buckinghamshire to present her proposed deal. The mercury was running high, as were tensions; it was reported that Downing Street officials made it clear if ministers weren't happy with the deal, they could leave but would have to give up their ministerial cars and take a taxi home. Hours later, and the Chequers deal was finally done. People seemed pleased... but for how long? Mark Mardell revisits the events of that day and finds out from those there what really went on.

19. The election that broke Brexit

When Theresa May called a surprise general election that she'd ruled since she took office, with the aim strengething her mandate ahead of tricky Brexit negotiations, nobody could have predicted that she'd end up losing her overall majority in the Commons.

18. Dexeu: Brexit from a broom cupboard

Even before she became Prime Minister, Theresa May pledged a new government department that would oversee Britain's departure from the European. Not just that, but the department would be run by a leading Brexiteer. How much influence did David Davis - the first Brexit secretary - have? Who was really leading negotiations? And was it all simply a political manoeuvre on the Prime Minister's part? Mark Mardell delves into the corridors of Whitehall and the new Department for Exiting the European Union, to find out what was really going on behind the doors of No 10 and No 9 Downing Street.

17. Lancaster House and red lines

January 2017 and Theresa May delivers her now infamous Lancaster House speech. But how was it decided what it would say and where it would be said? Mark Mardell dissects whether the speech backed the Prime Minister into a corner by setting out her red lines, or if it was merely the start of the long negotiating process.

16. Article 50 and the Avatar of Hate

It took the Government nine months to trigger Article 50 after the British public voted to leave the European Union. At the time, some said it was overdue. Since, people have said it was too soon. Running alongside that debate, though, was whether it could even be triggered at all. Mark Mardell unpicks the attempt to trigger Article 50 without a vote in Parliament and the ensuing court case, how a business woman was thrust into the limelight and felt she became “an avatar of hate” and whether the timing was wrong all along.

15. Road to Conference

After Theresa May became Prime Minister, one of the first jobs was to set out her vision for implementing Brexit. Integral to doing that were her Chiefs of Staff – Nick Timothy and Fiona Hill. Mark Mardell considers how Mrs May positioned herself as the person to deliver Brexit, the influence her chiefs had at the time, and - as she approached her first party conference that Autumn – what her speeches said about how negotiations would progress.

14. Inside May's Mind

In June 2016, Theresa May put herself forward to be the new Prime Minister, the person who would navigate the UK's exit from the European Union. Her campaign, however, was to be short lived and she moved into Number 10 just a few weeks later. What did she think about the EU? Mark Mardell delves into what she said to friends and colleagues, the role she played in the Referendum campaign itself and what this tells us about her approach to the subsequent negotiations. Oh, and what does "Brexit means Brexit" really mean? Email: pm@bbc.co.uk Twitter: @BBCPM

13. An Island Nation

In 1973, there were celebrations when Britain joined the European Community. But there were always those against the UK being part of the project. Over the next 45 years, there were debates and clashes, headlines and speeches; everyone speaking just as passionately about membership, regardless of which side they were on. In Brexit: A Love Story? Mark Mardell has talked to the people who were there at those key moments, trawled through the BBC's archives to hear what was said at the time, and painted a picture of how things have changed over time. Was the end, Britain voting to leave the European Union, an inevitability? Email: worldatone@bbc.co.uk. Twitter: @BBCWorldatOne
