The Hour

We loved the first series of this slick retro British newsroom drama, and series two promises more political intrigue and complicated love lives. Picking up the story ten months on, the focus shifts to the relationship between celebrity and news in 1950s London. Can producer Bel (played by Romola Garai) teach her sexist bosses a lesson? Will she resist the charms of married anchor Hector (Dominic West)? And will she and newshound pal Freddie (Ben Whishaw) ever get together? New faces join the team - including Peter Capaldi and Hannah Tointon - promising to keep things interesting.

On BBC2 end of June
