5.0 out of 5 stars spy thriller set in 50's tv broadcast May 23 2012
By Marcia TOP 100 REVIEWER

kept me glued to my seat. written by Abi Morgan (iron lady, shame, sex traffic). London 1956, bbc launches the hour, a topical newcast produced by Bel Rowley (Emma). Bel is an ambitious female competing in a 'man's world' w/ the support of her best friend Freddie Lyon (Bright Star, Ben Winshaw), a fearless truth-seeking reporter. a triangle emerges when Bel has an affair w/ the anchorman, Hector Madden (the Wire)who juggles his affairs along w/ his upper class political allies.

Freddie receives a plea from an old friend, Ruth, who is later murdered. trying to find out the truth, freddie is confronted w/ mi6 and russian spys. Set in the politically sensitive war w/ nassar of Egypt over the suez canal and the hungarian revolution, bel, freddie and hector walk a fine line between alienating british politicians while trying to keep jobs and telling the truth about lies, murder and government corruption. All the while freddie keeps probing -- who killed ruth and why? This one is a keeper, if you like spy thrillers, history, politics and complicated human relations. i was entranced as i followed freddies quest for truth beside bel's power and love relationships and hector's ambition. british drama lovers and robert ludlum fans line up to buy.
