This is the story of the battle between appeasers and anti-appeasers in the period before – and just after – the start of the Second World War, and the formation of the 1940 coalition government which, like the election of 2010, abruptly ruptured all previous political alignments. Based on real events, this is a fascinating and little known tale of idealism, blackmail, and political skulduggery.

Starring Charles Edwards, Kim Wall, John Rowe, Richard Dillane, Carl Prekopp, Adam Billington, Gerard McDermott, James Lailey, and Adjoa Andoh. Other parts played by Christopher Webster and Rikki Lawton. Directed by Marc Beeby.
