Prime Minister's Questions -- live and online

It turns out you no longer have to rely on recording the C-SPAN broadcasts of Prime Minister's Question Time from the UK House of Commons.

You can view Prime Minister's Question Time here,
live each Wednesday at 1200 GMT while the House of Commons is in session (the next PMQs will be on Wednesday October 11). Or you can access recorded video and transcripts of past PM Question Times. The videos are available in Windows Media Player and in Real Player.

Also available is a Web page, What are Prime Minister's Questions?. "Prime Minister's Question Time (often referred to as PMQs) is an opportunity for MPs from all parties to question the PM on any subject..."

You can, however, find at C-SPAN's Web page, Legislatures Around the World, links to legislatures all over the world and find links to the Webcasts that are available from many countries. (You could compare PMQs in the UK and Canada and Australia, for example.)
