"In the TV series, the protagonist had 24 hours to save the world. A potentially more testing assignment now awaits 24's director Stephen Hopkins: reviving the Labour party's campaign.
"With nine days to go before polling day, Labour has recruited Hopkins to take charge of its new election broadcast. In 24, starring Kiefer Sutherland as agent Jack Bauer, viewers are taken on a rollercoaster ride that leaves them on tenterhooks. For Labour, Hopkins will be taking a somewhat different tack.
"The broadcast will attempt to shift the focus towards policy and away from personality, in line with Labour's attempt to refocus election coverage away from the televised debates."
