Written by the award-winning screenwriter of Sex Traffic and Brick Lane and boasting an all-star cast, this gorgeous and thrilling 1950s drama follows a deadly conspiracy, laced with intense ambition and crackling with sexual tension. The Hour is available on BBC DVD and Blu-Ray on the 29th August 2011 from 2entertain.

London 1956. At Lime Grove Studios, the BBC are launching 'The Hour' a new topical news programme. At the heart of the show are three contrasting journalists: enigmatic producer Bel Rowley (Romola Garai) a spirited woman in a man's world, her best friend Freddie Lyon (Ben Whishaw) a brilliant and passionate reporter and a charming, well-connected front man, Hector Madden (Dominic West)

As Freddie moves to cover a significant but controversial breaking story, the trio become entangled in an intense interplay of politics, ambition and romance, ignited by a mysterious murder and chilling conspiracy

The Hour's supporting cast includes Tim Pigott-Smith and Juliet Stevenson as Lord and Lady Elms; Anton Lesser as Clarence Fendley, the BBC's Head of News; Anna Chancellor as Lix, The Hour's brave and maverick hard-drinking foreign correspondent; Julian Rhind-Tutt as Angus McCain, the Prime Minister's eyes and ears; and Oona Chaplin as Marnie Madden, Hector's spoilt beautiful wife.

The Hour explores the ruthless politics behind the polite social facade and ultimately it reveals the secrets that will bring down a British prime Minister and redefine the world for a new generation.

Stunning extra footage includes - behind the scenes of the 1950's newsroom and an insight into how the set design was created. The Hour will be available from DVD, Blu-Ray and iTunes.
