James Graham: This House

Directed by Jeremy Herrin

1974. The UK faces economic crisis and a hung parliament. In a culture hostile to cooperation, itís a period when votes are won or lost by one, when there are fist fights in the bars and when sick MPs are carried through the lobby to register their vote.

Set in the engine rooms of Westminster, James Grahamís This House strips politics down to the practical realities of those behind the scenes: the whips who roll up their sleeves and on occasion bend the rules to shepherd and coerce a diverse chorus of MPs within the Mother of all Parliaments.

Cast includes Gunnar Cauthery, Phil Daniels, Reece Dinsdale, Charles Edwards, Vincent Franklin, Christopher Godwin, Andrew Havill, Matthew Pidgeon, Richard Ridings, Giles Taylor, Tony Turner, Rupert Vansittart, Ed Hughes, Helena Lymbery
