Video and Audio carries live and archived coverage of all UK Parliament proceedings
taking place in public, including debates and committee meetings of both Houses.
The material is then available from an on-demand archive going back to 1st July 2009. The site
has links to order papers and background papers and also carries videos explaining
how Parliament works.
As many as 18 live streams are available simultaneously. Coverage of debates in
the chambers of both the House of Commons and the House of Lords, Sittings in Westminster
Hall and up to four committees at a time receive full audio-visual coverage.
Other committees meeting in public are currently covered in audio-only but from
October 2006 we are exploring the potential of automated webcameras. Picture size
and both picture and sound quality generally have also been increased.
The Video and Audio site is operated by The Twofour
Group on behalf of the UK Parliament. The full Parliamentary tape archive
is administered by the Parliamentary Recording Unit and can supply tape, CD and
DVD recordings of proceedings at modest cost. We welcome your comments on this service
and suggestions for future developments. Please help us by directing your query
