Earlier today Foden's appeared on BBC2's 'Daily Politics' programme as part of their general election coverage.

Tuesday evening saw the cameras arrive to film part of the rehearsal, before players Ian Raisbeck & David McGlynn and Archivist Stewart Green returned to be interviewed live on air by presenter Giles Dilnot on Wednesday. The broadcast included clips from the rehearsal, a performance of the bands signature march 'The Cossack' before the live interviews which saw the panel members going head-to-head on the recent party manifestos, education policy, campaign strategies, coalition options and support for the arts.

The feature was also picked up by the BBC News channel who also played the rehearsal clips and broadcast a second live interview just minutes after the BBC2 version.

Clips from the live broadcasts and some photos from the event can been seen below...

For any conductor and every audience, Foden’s Band is a musical Magic Carpet. It continually takes the listener to places that few other ensembles rarely even approach Howard Snell
