Hopefully this one is more riveting than it sounds.
Next week SBS screens the UK doco, Inside The Houses of Parliament which is hopefully more riveting than it sounds.
A week later Australia gets its own counterpart on ABC as Annabel Crabb looks at The House.
This revealing documentary focuses on an iconic building that has played a significant role in shaping the historical landscape of Britain.
Using archive footage, informed interviews and dramatic reconstruction, the program examines the rich history of the Houses of Parliament – the home of British democracy and known around the world as a symbol of the British nation.
Within its walls British laws are made, and crucial decisions that shape the country are debated. For hundreds of years, Parliament has witnessed shocking scandals, weathered conspiracy and betrayal, and even been a target for terrorists.
