Description & Features+

"Copenhagen": "Copenhagen" is the Daniel Craig-led adaptation of the popular Michael Frayn stage-play based on a strange trip the German physicist Werner Heisenberg made to Copenhagen in 1941 to see his Danish counterpart Niels Bohr. The meeting was fraught with danger and embarrassment and ended in disaster. "Hitler On Trial": Meet Hans Litten, the brilliant young lawyer who dares to cross-examine Adolf Hitler in a Berlin courtroom in 1931. Litten's goal: to expose Hitler's true character and murderous plans, and halt the rapid rise of the Nazi Party. His reward: the red-hot hatred and fatal revenge of a hostile witness. "Hitler on Trial" sweeps you into this little-known, true story of collision between the future Führer's blatant contempt for the law, and Litten's brave but futile attempt to save German democracy. A gripping, intense BBC drama guaranteed to make your heart race, starring Ed Stoppard ("Upstairs Downstairs", "The Musketeers"), Ian Hart ("Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone", "Finding Neverland"), Sarah Smart ("Wallander", "Death in Paradise") and Anton Lesser ("Wolf Hall", "Game of Thrones"). "Wodehouse In Exile": When the Nazis began using Wodehouse's work as propaganda, he became a pawn in the battle between the Germans and the Allies and quickly found himself vilified and branded as a traitor in wartime Britain. With an all-star cast led by Tim Pigott-Smith ("V for Vendetta") and Zoë Wanamaker ("Mr. Selfridge"), "Wodehouse in Exile" shares the gripping tale of how the creator of Jeeves and Wooster faced treason charges that prevented him from setting foot on English soil again. "Castles in the Sky": Featuring a stunning lead performance by Eddie Izzard ("The Avengers", "Valkyrie"), "Castles in the Sky" recounts the powerhouse human drama behind Scotsman Robert Watson-Watt's history-altering invention of radar technology. On the brink of war, Watson-Watt's invention changed the playing field and advanced Britain's chances against the rising Nazi party. Izzard's riveting portrayal captures the free-thinking rule-breaker's struggles and ultimate triumph.
