This landmark observational series for BBC Two is an unprecedented look behind the scenes in the House of Commons. Driven by personal narratives, the films move seamlessly between the affairs of State and the hurly burly of life below stairs. Darren Kemp, Commissioning Editor, BBC : “The series has permission to go places that the news cameras just do not see. This amazing access, coupled with Michael Cockerell’s unrivalled knowledge of politics and politicians, promises to make a landmark series which will bring a whole new perspective to the most important institution in the country.” Tx February 2015
