Airdate: The Trial of Christine Keeler
True story behind the Profumo Affair is dramatised in new BBC First series.
Anticipated UK drama The Trial Of Christine Keeler will screen on BBC First next month.
Written by BAFTA-winning novelist and screenwriter Amanda Coe and directed by Andrea Harkin, it takes a fresh look at one of the most infamous British stories: the chain of events in the 1960s that came to be known as the Profumo Affair.
At the centre of the storm was 19-year-old Christine Keeler – a young woman whom the powerful, male-dominated establishment sought to silence and exploit, but who refused to play by their rules.
The Trial of Christine Keeler goes behind the headlines to tell a human story about the sexual and cultural politics of a profile story.
It stars Sophie Cookson, James Norton, Ellie Bamber, Ben Miles and Emilia Fox.
This screened in the UK from late December.
Sunday, February 16 at 8.30pm on BBC First.
