Regular televised coverage of the British House of Commons began November 21, 1989. Since then C-SPAN has aired the twice-weekly prime minister’s Question Time. Margaret Thatcher, who was prime minister five years ago, was originally opposed to allowing cameras in the chambers, but after a one-year experiment, the House voted to continue television coverage of the proceedings. This retrospective highlights some of the memorable moments in the House and contains interviews about the effects of televising the sessions. close
