Erskine May

By Dan Rebellato.

A humorous look at the 19th-century rebuilding of the Houses of Parliament, combining history and fiction.

Charles Barry and Augustus Welby Pugin work at opposite ends of the architectural spectrum.

But when Parliament explodes and Big Ben rockets into the sky, they have 12 hours to rebuild it before Queen Victoria arrives for the opening.

With Alex Jennings and Ewan Hooper.

Director: Polly Thomas.
