    The day The Telegraph exposed MPs’ Expenses

    The day The Telegraph exposed MPs’ Expenses

    The Telegraph’s Christopher Hope was there when the 2009 MPs’ Expenses Scandal broke. In fact, he broke it. 
    One hard drive, thousands of pages of expense claims covering every MP in the country, and nine days to wade through them before the first story would go to print. Christopher takes us inside the biggest story of his career, and the biggest parliamentary scandal in a generation.

    The day Margaret Thatcher fell

    The day Margaret Thatcher fell

    The Telegraph’s Assistant Editor Philip Johnston was in Paris when Margaret Thatcher's power started to slip. 
    It was the beginning of the end of the Iron Lady’s reign - and it played out in a cobbled courtyard in the French capital. Philip takes us to the Paris summit where world leaders debated a new world order after the Cold War, as votes to oust the Prime Minister were counted back in Westminster.

    The day Harry married Meghan

    The day Harry married Meghan

    The Telegraph’s Associate Editor Camilla Tominey was in Windsor the day of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding. 
    It was to mark an entirely new chapter for the prince - and for the Royal Family. Camilla takes us inside the first page of that chapter, from rushing to see the carriage procession, to her ringside seat for the refreshingly different ceremony.
