Chernobyl is a tale of lies and cowardice, of courage and conviction, of human failure and human nobility. The five-part mini-series focuses on the heart-breaking scale of the nuclear plant disaster that occurred in Ukraine in April 1986, revealing how and why it happened, and telling the shocking, remarkable stories of the heroes who risked their lives to save others.
The show set in contemporary London features detective partners and enemies, Elaine Renko and Robert Hicks, who seek to enforce the law and protect their loved ones in a world that every day slips closer to certain destruction. But what's the point of justice in the face of Armageddon?, it asks.
The four-part drama series tells the compelling story of David Collier (Lee Ingleby) who is living a nightmare.
Convicted of murdering his wife Tara, David has served seven years in prison. He's lost everything he held dear: his wife, his two children and even the house he owned. He's always protested his innocence and faces the rest of his life behind bars. His situation couldn't be more desperate.
Despised by his wife's family and friends, his only support has been his faithful brother Phil (Daniel Ryan) who has stood by him, sacrificing his own career and livelihood to mount a tireless campaign to prove his brother's innocence.
The White Princess
Adapted from Philippa Gregory's best-selling novel of the same name and part of The Cousins' War book series, The White Princess concludes the story of England's War of the Roses and charts the rise of the House of Tudor through the tortuous marriage between Princess Elizabeth of York and King Henry Tudor. The year is 1485 and Princess Elizabeth, daughter of "The White Queen," has been pledged in marriage to the newly anointed King Henry Tudor in hopes that it will bring peace to a war-torn country. England is united, but their marriage is soon divided, as rumors circulate that Elizabeth's long-lost brother Prince Richard is alive and planning to take the throne. Now she must choose between Tudor wife and York princess, between her new husband and the boy who claims to be her own blood and the true heir to the crown.
Dickensian intertwines the realm of fictional characters in Charles Dickens' novels in half-hour episodes, including Scrooge, Fagin and Miss Havisham, as their lives intertwine in 19th century London. The Old Curiosity Shop sits next door to The Three Cripples Pub, while Fagin's Den is hidden down a murky alley off a bustling Victorian street.
What happened at Dunkirk in May 1940 must go down as one of the greatest escapes of all time. A third of a million British soldiers were facing annihilation but just days later the majority had been rescued and Churchill had delivered his most famous speech, vowing never to surrender. Through the use of hybrid drama and documentary techniques, this BBC television docudrama series offers a unique perspective and a true understanding of what actually happened. Dramatic stories, sourced from the accounts of men involved, and shot in documentary style, are put in context by archive footage, maps, CGI and commentary.
