For more than five years, Nicola Sturgeon has been the most powerful person in Scottish politics, and she has always stressed the importance of a key figure in helping her get there – Alex Salmond. The story of this political partnership has become increasingly complex and could have long-term effects on Scottish politics.

In this episode, host Dermot Murnaghan speaks to MSP Alex Neil about the rise of Ms Sturgeon and what it’s been like to work alongside both party leaders, and Sky’s Scotland bureau chief James Matthews about what the Salmond report means for Ms Sturgeon’s career.
