WEDNESDAYS FROM 13 FEBRUARY 8.30PM Channel 010

A love affair that threatened the entire British establishment.

The shocking true story of the first British politician to stand trial for conspiracy to murder.  It's the late 1960s, homosexuality has only just been decriminalised, and Jeremy Thorpe, 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 Norman Scott, his vociferous ex-lover is around, Thorpe's brilliant career is at risk, and eventually Thorpe can see only one way to silence Scott for good. The trial of Jeremy Thorpe changed politics forever as the British public discovered the darkest secrets of the Establishment and the lengths they’d go to conceal them.

Starring Hugh Grant (Love Actually), Ben Whishaw (Spectre), Alex Jennings (The Crown), Jonathan Hyde (The Strain), and Eve Myles (Broadchurch).
