AN INVITATION TO ENTER THE CUT THROAT WORLD OF POLITICS...
Based on the novel by Michael Dobbs
The PM made a deadly mistake when he passed over Francis Urquhart. With his recent dire performance in the General Election, he's going to need all the friends he can get. But Urquhart won't be ignored by anyone and now he's out for revenge. As the trusted Chief Whip, he has his hands on every grubby little secret in politics, and with innocent journalist Mattie Storin unwittingly drawn into his web, he'll stop at nothing to get what he wants...
A black tale of greed, corruption and burning ambition, based on the bestselling novel by Michael Dobbs, a former aide to Margaret Thatcher, this magnificent BBC TV production is as compelling as ever on video.
"...a triumph. This was a prestige production, gripping television and beautifully done in the best BBC tradition." TODAY
"Urquhart's way of turning to us and confiding his malice makes us in a sense conspirators. He thinks we are amused and he is right. We are delighted". THE TIMES
