TV Series Starring David Suchet
"Press" is set in the world of newspapers - its past riven by hacking scandals, its present at the mercy of the digital age and the 24 hour news cycle, its future uncertain.Press is written by Mike Bartlett, creator of Doctor Foster and winner of two 2015 Olivier Awards for different plays, including the critically acclaimed King Charles III. Press will be produced by three-time BAFTA winner Nigel Stafford-Clark.Writer Mike Bartlett says: "From exposing political corruption to splashing on celebrity scandal, editors and journalists have enormous influence over us, yet recent events have shown there's high-stakes and life-changing drama going on in the news organisations themselves. I'm hugely excited to be working with the BBC to make Press, a behind-the-scenes story about a group of diverse and troubled people who shape the stories and headlines we read every day."
Decline and Fall

The Hollow Crown
A tale of family, politics and power. The films tell the rise and fall of three Kings and how their destiny shaped our history.
When the mysterious lawyer Gina Hawkes turns up asking Harry to find a missing alibi witness for her client he agrees to take on the job but is unwittingly drawn into investigating the death of his brother 20 years ago. Harry quickly finds himself caught up in a much bigger and more complex conspiracy that reaches deep into the heart of the British political system.
Charles Dicken's Great Expectations is adaptated for the BBC in this three-part series aired on Christmas 2011.
The Way We Live Now
First screened on BBC in 2001, The Way We Live Now will surprise those who know Anthony Trollope through the subtleties of his Barsetshire novels. This story of ambition centers around Augustus Melmotte, an Austrian Jewish financier who takes the London money markets and social scene by storm in his efforts to become an "English country gentleman." His rise and fall is followed with remorseless logic by Trollope, and David Yates's direction keeps this in focus against a wealth of subplots and character interaction.
The cast is a strong one, with David Suchet's Melmotte gripping in his recklessness, climaxing in the theatrical magnificence of his departure in disgrace from the House of Commons. Shirley Henderson is magnetic as his put-upon daughter Marie, courted by the cream-of-society bachelors for her dowry rather than her person.
In SEESAW, a three-part television drama that aired on British TV in 1998, David Suchet (who is best known for his work in AGATHA CHRISTIE'S POIROT) stars as a father desperate to rescue his daughter from the hands of a group of merciless kidnappers. The tension slowly mounts over each episode as the family are blackmailed by the mysterious kidnappers, and consider meeting their half-a-million-pound ransom demand.
This is a British series which brings to life Agatha Christie's Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot, whose sleuthing, for the purposes of this series, belongs chiefly in the 1930s.
Blott on the Landscape
