The documentary charts the dramatic conflicts dividing the Conservative Party and UK politics, beginning with former prime minister Theresa May attempting to get her negotiated deal through Parliament.

Dorothy Byrne, commissioning editor said: “It’s been extraordinary for the public witnessing recent political events from the outside.

“It’s even more extraordinary seeing some of those events from the inside.”

Director Patrick Forbes added: “It’s been a real privilege filming the first draft of this extraordinary period in our history – and being given the freedom to show politics as it really is.”
