Inside the Commons

Synopsis
In this series, award-winning reporter Michael Cockerell travels deep inside the corridors of the Palace of Westminster revealing what really went on behind the scenes in the run up to the 2015 General Elections.

The cameras follow ministers and MPs as they seek to navigate the machinery of the House. We are also introduced to the people who keep the Commons working from the keeper of Big Ben to the gospel-singing tea lady of the Members’ Tea Room.
