Meet The Lords starts on BBC2 27/02/17

Meet the Lords

Meet the Lords, a new, timely, three part series begins on BBC TWO on 27 February at 9pm.  In a TV first, Meet The Lords takes viewers behind the scenes at the House of Lords, with exclusive access and unique insights into what was a turbulent year for the peers, as they battled it out with the Government over dramatic changes to the political landscape. 

Over the course of a year the series follows some of the larger-than-life characters who inhabit the House of Lords, one of Britain's oldest, most idiosyncratic and important institutions. For the first time, free roaming cameras have been allowed to film inside the Lords Chamber and in its committees to capture moments that matter to the UK, but usually go unseen.

The Open University's Academic Consultant for this series was Dr Richard Heffernan and the Media Fellow was Sue Hemmings.

Additional resources on OpenLearn  delve deeper into the role the House of Lords plays in the UK political system,  and include an interview with Meg Russell, audio pieces from Richard Heffernan on the past, present and future of the House of Lords, and an annotated bibliography for further reading.
