Top Dogs: Britain's New Supreme Court

The UK Supreme Court is replacing the House of Lords as the highest court in the land. Yet hardly anyone knows who its justices are, why the reform has been made and how it will change our lives. Joshua Rozenberg goes behind the scenes to talk to the judges and to visit their new court, and discovers from leading politicians how the new court was created. He also asks if Parliament will find the new judicial top dogs to be dangerous rivals for power.
