Benches inside the House of Commons Copyrighted image Copyright: BBC 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 will also be 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.
