Ordeal by Innocence

TV Preview: Ordeal By Innocence + Q&A with Sandra Goldbacher, Sarah Phelps, Morven Christie, Gaynor Holmes and James Prichard

Thursday, 22 March 2018 – 6:30pm
Cineworld Renfrew Street, Glasgow

Wealthy philanthropist Rachel Argyll is murdered at her family estate Sunny Point. Her adopted son Jack Argyll, a young delinquent, is arrested for her murder. He vehemently protests his innocence. Eighteen months later, Dr Arthur Calgary, a scientist, walks onto the velvety lawns of Sunny Point claiming to have just returned from an expedition to the Arctic. Even more extraordinary is his claim to hold the alibi that can prove Jack’s innocence.

But Jack died in prison before the case could come to trial, and the Argyll family is reluctant to dig up the secrets of the past. Rachel’s widower Leo is about to remarry his secretary Gwenda and none of Rachel’s other adopted children Mary, Mickey, Tina or Hester, nor longstanding housekeeper Kirsten, is willing to reopen that most horrendous chapter of their lives.

However, the shattering implications of Calgary’s story are too big to avoid; if he is telling the truth then the wrong person was arrested for Rachel’s murder. And if Jack was not the killer, then it must have been somebody else at Sunny Point.

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Sandra Goldbacher, writer Sarah Phelps, actor Morven Christie, BBC Scotland Commissioner Gaynor Holmes and James Prichard, Chairman & CEO Agatha Christie Ltd. Networking drinks will follow the Q&A.

What TV’s on at BAFTA in January 2018? Including Requiem and Britannia

Every couple of weeks, TMINE flags up what new TV events BAFTA is holding around the UK

We’ve already done January, but BAFTA is being its usual helpful self and not telling me about things until they have already sold out (Meet the Controllers – thanks, BAFTA!). So I’ve had a look and it turns out that they had some secret Welsh events they hadn’t told me about as well. Better still, they’re not sold out.

What TV’s on at BAFTA in January 2018? Including Working Class White Men

Every couple of weeks, TMINE flags up what new TV events BAFTA is holding around the UK

There wasn’t much to report for December, which was all about the movies (and short-form), but coming up at the start of January, we have a TV preview.

TV Preview: Working Class White Men + Q&A

Thursday, 4 January 2018 – 6:45pm
Princess Anne Theatre, BAFTA, 195 Piccadilly
The first episode of a two-part series examining why many working class white men feel demonised, forgotten and angry. Followed by a Q+A with Professor Green and director Christian Collerton.

Presented by Professor Green this documentary explores what life is really like for these men, why many of them feel abandoned, and what the consequences are for Britain if we continue to look away. Raised by his Nan on a council estate in Hackney, Professor Green is himself from a working class, low income background.

Over a period of six months he follows six working class white men in different parts of the country to understand what life in modern Britain is like for them. He examines the challenges and barriers these men face in education, work, family life and in the way the rest of society regards them.

Directed by Christian Collerton, with executive producers  Neil Crombie and Joe Evans, and produced by Swan Films.

With thanks to Channel 4
