YOU might have guessed by now that I’m a big fan of TV drama.
So I was delighted to be asked to write the interviews for the launch of ITV Encore.
A new top quality drama channel launching on Sky Channel 123 at 7pm tonight (Monday June 9).
I spoke at length to ITV Director of Television Peter Fincham.
And to Broadchurch producer Richard Stokes who had some interesting revelations.
Including details of a series one scene that never made the screen during the original run.
Plus other details about the series you might not know.
“THIS is not just a robbery. This is an attack on the very cornerstone of England.”
The Great Train Robbery is a new two-part BBC1 drama which tells the story of the crime of the century from both sides.
Feature length A Robber’s Tale and A Copper’s Tale star Luke Evans as robbery mastermind Bruce Reynolds and Jim Broadbent as the detective who caught him.
Writer Chris Chibnall details for the first time on screen the minute by minute drama of the 1963 robbery, along with the story of how it was planned – and what went wrong.
Then turning his attention to the specially assembled squad of Scotland Yard detectives and the investigation that tracked down the gang and brought them to justice.
It’s a story of one man taking on the Establishment….and losing.
Along with a gripping tale of two teams of men both intent on achieving their goals on different sides of the law.
