The highly acclaimed BBC series 'Inside the Commons', produced by Atlantic Productions and presented by Michael Cockerell, was filmed with unprecedented access to the House of Commons. Travelling deep inside the corridors of the Palace of Westminster this series reveals what really went on behind the scenes during a remarkable year in politics, in the run up to one of the most unpredictable general elections ever. 'Inside the Commons' follows Ministers and MPs high and low as they seek to navigate the machinery of the House, to make laws and fight their constituents' battles. 'Inside the Commons' will also introduce the nation to the people who keep the Commons working, from the keepers of Big Ben, the Hawker responsible for keeping pigeons off the 19th-century stonework to the gospel-singing tea lady of the Members' Tea Room. It's no easy task. From crumbling stonework to leaky roofs, the series shows the challenges faced as staff strive to keep the country's most iconic and historic building functioning as a modern parliament.
