A fascinating documentary that uncovers and explains the inner workings of the parliamentary system of the Isle of Man. Tynwald is the oldest continuous parliamentary assembly in the world, founded over one thousand years ago by Viking settlers. Over the centuries it has changed and adapted to suit the needs of the Manx people and here you can witness how new laws are made, follow the build-up to a general election, sit in on a Council of Ministers meeting, observe the daily routines of Tynwald members and even venture into various debating chambers. We also take a detailed look at the annual Tynwald Ceremony - an ancient Manx tradition that combines the solemnity of law-making with pageants and unique atmosphere. Written and presented by acclaimed Manx filmmaker and historian Charles Guard.
