Channel 4 Commissions Brian And Margaret

News Image
Channel 4 has commissioned a major new drama, Brian and Margaret, from Baby Cow Productions (This Time With Alan Partridge, Chivalry, The Witchfinder).

Directed by Academy Award nominee and BAFTA-winning Stephen Frears (A Very English Scandal, Florence Foster Jenkins, Philomena) and written by RTS award-winner James Graham (Sherwood, Quiz, Brexit: The Uncivil War), based on political editor and TV producer, Rob Burley’s book Why is This Lying Bastard Lying to Me: Searching for the Truth on Political TV.

Starring two-time Academy Award nominee Steve Coogan (The Reckoning, Philomena) and Harriet Walter (Succession, Ted Lasso, Silo), Brian and Margaret looks at the final ever television interview of former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and journalist Brian Walden, and asks whether the slow death of full-length political TV interviews puts modern democracy at risk.
