Does Jeremy Corbyn have a problem with the BBC?

Last week, when the Labour party launched its manifesto, BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg was booed by some activists who consider her the personification of the public service broadcaster’s supposed bias against the opposition party.

Jeremy Corbyn was quick to dissuade his supporters – insisting that no reporters would be subjected to abuse – but what does he think of the BBC ‘s coverage?

Who does he want to succeed him as leader of the Labour party? We sat down with him to find out about this, as well as his thoughts on whether his election or his policy is more important.
