Lancelot House made many home movies in his lifetime, including dramas starring his future wife, and a documentary about 'The Mad King' Ludwig II of Bavaria. So the move of the family firm, W.H. House & Son, to new purpose built offices on Sevenoaks High Street was the perfect subject. Lance directs his dad from bank to architects, capturing every stage of building a site which still stands today.
