BBC News - Steve Bell sketches the roots of cartoon satire

A legacy of political satire is on show as two exhibitions in Aberdeen trace the history of sketching the great and powerful.

Reporter Kevin Keane viewed some of the artworks and newspaper cartoonist Steve Bell spoke to the Sunday Politics Scotland programme about his approach to cartoon satire.

The Pitt cartoons by James Gillray mentioned in Steve Bell's interview:

"The Plumb-pudding in danger: or State Epicures taking un Petit Souper", 1805

"An excrescence - a fungus; alias a toadstool upon a dunghill", 1791
