The Great Fire: Interviews

THE_GREAT_FIRE_EP1_01-1

“IT is an incredible undertaking to take on something as epic as this.”

The Great Fire executive producer Douglas Rae talking to me on location in Greenwich.

Filming scenes that day in the Painted Hall at the Old Royal Naval College – one of the finest rooms in the world.

The next time we meet is somewhere in the countryside near Henley.

Where 1666 London and the River Thames have been re-created for the screen, along with the flames that will destroy a huge part of the city.

Epic indeed.

The four-part drama begins on ITV at 9pm this Thursday (October 16).

Telling the story of both the fire and the human stories within it.

From humble baker Thomas Farriner to King Charles II.

My interviews for ITV with Douglas Rae, Andrew Buchan (Thomas Farriner), Jack Huston (King Charles II), Rose Leslie (Sarah Farriner), Daniel Mays (Samuel Pepys), Charles Dance (Lord Denton) and Oliver Jackson-Cohen (James, Duke of York) are at the link below.
