Meet the Lords

This episode introduces the larger-than-life characters that populate the House of Lords, one of Britain’s oldest, most idiosyncratic and most important institutions.

In a TV first, Meet the Lords has exclusive access to film behind the scenes in a turbulent year which has seen dramatic changes in the political landscape and the Lords battling it out with the government.

This episode features new people’s peers, hereditaries and political grandees as they try to change legislation, follow their personal passions and clash with the government, all in a gothic palace where centuries-old ceremony and tradition dominate.

This is the first time free-roaming cameras have ever been allowed to film in the Lords Chamber and in its committees.
