This timely, moving and funny insight into the workings of British politics begins streaming from Thursday, May 28, at 7pm on YouTube and will then be available for seven days.

It’s 1974 and Britain has a hung Parliament. The corridors of Westminster ring with the sound of infighting and backstabbing as the political parties battle to change the future of the nation.

Jeremy Herrin directs a cast including Phil Daniels, Reece Dinsdale, Charles Edwards and Vincent Franklin.

The production was filmed live in 2013.

This House was written by James Graham who penned Quiz, about a Who Wants To Be A Millionaire winner embroiled in a coughing scandal, which was shown on television over Easter.
