Two hundred years ago a British prime minister was shot as he entered the House of Commons.

As the turbulent elections of 1997 loom, the truth about the assassination rocks a rural community and threatens to unseat a safe Tory candidate.

That event all those years ago now looks set to change the political landscape of the sleepy rural constituency, its settled incumbent and unwitting electorate.
