Campbell has talked extensively about how Donald had inspired him to fight for better mental health services and understanding, and to become the ambassador for several mental health charities. He is regularly involved in events with the club and was involved in rescuing the club from potential bankruptcy. Beneath its painted coffered ceiling – it is now Grade II* listed – Sarah Bernhardt starred in a special flying matinee of Alexandre Dumas’s La Dame aux Camelias. The OU also offers creative writing courses and qualifications, such as the modules Creative Writing and Advanced Creative Writing, a BA (Honours) English Literature and Creative Writing, and an MA in Creative Writing.

But it is his political diaries that take up most space – several metres, at this point – on the nation’s bookshelves. Lots worked for nothing, not least the thousands of volunteers that were engaged around the country. Whether it’s Brexit here, or guns and abortion in the US, the shouting drowns out the debates that we need to have.In October 2008, he broadcast the personal story of his mental illness in a television documentary partly to reduce the stigma of that illness. For the Mental Health Awareness Week two years later he broadcast the documentary Alastair Campbell: Depression and Me, exploring different ways of dealing and coping with depression. The following year, he was portrayed by Mark Bazeley in the Stephen Frears film The Queen – a role reprised by Bazeley in 2010 follow-up The Special Relationship. And all because one man – Bill – had the insight that he needed another alcoholic – Bob – to guide him through tricky moments.

Campbell worked again for the Labour Party as Campaign Director in the run-up to their third consecutive victory at the 2005 general election. In November 2017 Campbell was awarded an honorary fellowship of the Royal College of Psychiatrists in recognition of his leadership role in breaking down the stigma surrounding mental illness, and in fighting for better services.The second part is more about what we as individuals can do to address the problems that have made politics such a mess.

They now also do an interview channel, Rest Is Politics Leading, and have talked to a number of former Prime Ministers, including John Major, Theresa May and Tony Blair, leading international politicians, among them Hillary Clinton, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Francois Hollande, and a host of British figures from politics and beyond. AA is a global organisation that came about when Bill, a broker and an alcoholic, who was on a business trip in Ohio, asked whether there was another alcoholic around whom he could talk to, and who could help him stick to his new resolve not to drink.

He led a fundraising drive for Burnley FC, a team he has supported since the age of four, when the club was in financial trouble. He immediately appealed the decision, saying tactical voting was not a breach of the rule under which he had been expelled, and arguing that unless all others who had acted as he did were expelled he also had a case for discrimination. People, he suggests, are always coming up to him, either to blame him for New Labour’s failings, or else to ask what “we” can do to improve things. Over the next five days as an in-patient he was given medication to calm him, and he realised that he had an alcohol problem after seeing a psychiatrist. Immediately after the UK's referendum on membership of the European Union in June 2016, Campbell stated that he thought it was "the worst decision Britain had made in his lifetime" and would do what he could to change people's minds.You can subscribe to our YouTube channel to be alerted when the recording is uploaded, or just check our channel after the 24 May, when the video should have been made available.
