Simon Thurley, CEO of English Heritage and architectural advisor to the Queen and Prime Minister, takes us inside the buildings whose tenants rule the world. Downing Street, The White House and The Kremlin. Love, hate, treachery, barbarity, and base politics have all left their mark, the presidents and prime ministers come and go but the buildings remain: silent witness to the pages of history.
As a quirky history of three very different seats of power, it was hugely enjoyable
Fascinating film…intelligent, wide-ranging and detailed enough. Houses of Power leaves the viewer feeling cleverer than when they started
An intelligent and thought-provoking film
