|Famous Stephen Frears is directing the mini series|
It is the late 1960s, homosexuality has only just been decriminalised and Jeremy Thorpe (Hugh Grant), the leader of the Liberal party and the youngest leader of any British political party in a hundred years, has a secret he's desperate to hide. As long as his ex-lover Norman Scott (Ben Whishaw) is around, Thorpe's brilliant career is at risk. Thorpe schemes and deceives - until he can see only one way to silence Scott for good. The trial of Jeremy Thorpe changed society forever, illuminating
the darkest secrets of the Establishment. The Thorpe affair
revealed such breath-taking deceit and corruption that, at the time,
hardly anyone dared believe it could be true.
