On election night the BBC provides a choice: you can take the proceedings duly seriously with Election 97 or with a little less reverence with these two programmes. Election 97, for instance, will offer minute-by-minute updates on the state of the voting using the latest technology; The Election Night Armistice will offer Valerie Singleton using a bouncy castle.
HIGNFY features guests Richard Wilson and Nick Ross, while Armistice begins a three-hour live broadcast, hosted by the regular trio of Armando lannucci, Peter Baynham and David Schneider. Steve Coogan's Alan Partridge provides "expert" analysis of the genuine polling results from Norwich and Tony Robinson hosts a satirical archaeological dig. What will he unearth?
