What is the Supreme Court of the UK?

This is a video explaining the work of the Supreme Court (embedded in a useful Guardian article). I quite like the graphics but am not sure about the woman introducing it, Stacey Dealey (?). That is a kind of estuary English (Lord Kerr speaks otherwise). She seems to swallow the T at the end of words but not in the middle position. It isn’t quite as fake as Jamie Oliver, though. And one of the judicial assistants has a Scottish accent.
One misses the red leather of the seats in the House of Lords, although I suppose the law lords sat in a committee room rather than in the house.

There’s an open day on Saturday May 25, which I gather is also Towel Day and German football day.
