Elizabeth I's Secret Agents
3 x 60 minutes, BBC 2
Elizabeth I's Secret Agents lays bare the labyrinthine world of Elizabethan power. It rubs out the Gloriana vision of Queen Elizabeth’s reign and reveals an England which is politically unstable and religiously divided. A country under siege from foreign enemies and home-grown religious radicals. A Protestant state trying to anchor itself in choppy waters on the edge of a largely Catholic continent.
The Pope declares Queen Elizabeth a heretic and unleashes half a century of plots, armadas and eternal Catholic hopes for regime change. To combat this onslaught Queen Elizabeth looks to a father and son team to keep her safe – they are her spymasters and between them they will establish a secret state with tendrils reaching into Catholic conspiracies at home and abroad. It will keep her safe, secure the state, and, it will darken the souls and bloody the hands of its masters.
"Wonderfully dark and gossipy...This absorbing look at the complicated intrigues in and around Elizabeth I’s court is so dramatic it feels like a 16th-century Homeland." - The Radio Times
"Gripping" - The Times

Meet The Trumps: From Immigrant to President
1 x 60min Channel 4
Who is Donald Trump? What makes him tick? Today the media is looking for answers in all corners of his life, from his time in military school to the disdain the Queens boy was shown by the Manhattan elites when he entered the real estate world there. But the force that has shaped Donald Trump more than anything else can be found in his family tree.
From his immigrant grandfather Friedrich, who built the beginnings of the Trump fortune on vice and shady dealings in the famous Klondike Gold Rush of the 1890s… to his father Fred, a showboating self-promoter who used FDR’s New Deal loan subsidies to build a real estate empire which discriminated against blacks.
In this film, we tell the remarkable true story of how they created and then passed down the conscience free family culture of doing whatever it takes to come out on top – and how that helped make Donald Trump into the man he is today.
