ITV To Produce New Post Office Documentary Film

News Image
ITV has commissioned Little Gem to produce new film, Mr Bates vs The Post Office: The Impact [WT], which will reveal how the ITV drama series [also produced by Little Gem] has affected the lives of the subpostmasters it featured and provide an insight into the still ongoing struggle for justice and financial redress.

The documentary will feature Jo Hamilton, Jess Uppal, Noel Thomas and leading figure, Alan Bates as well as subpostmasters who have come forward in the aftermath of the drama series. Telling their stories on television for the first time, some say that without the public’s overwhelmingly positive reaction to the drama, they would not have had the courage to talk openly about their involvement in the scandal and how it affected them.

Mr Bates vs The Post Office: The Impact [WT] will also focus on shocking moments from the Judge-led Inquiry: testimony from Paula Vennells, Angela van den Bogerd and Post Office investigators, who were described by subpostmasters as behaving like “mafia gangsters”.

The film will also provide an insight into new developments and layers of intrigue that add further dimensions to a scandal that is still ongoing even following the broadcast of the drama and the subsequent torrent of news coverage.

Mr Bates vs The Post Office: The Impact [WT] is commissioned for ITV by Jo Clinton-Davis, ITV Controller of Factual.

For Little Gem, the Producer/Director is Clare Richards and the Executive Producers are Natasha Bondy and Ben Gale.
