Andy, a wannabe archaeologist, spends time in muddy fields with a metal detector and a packed lunch alongside his friend Lance. Together they dream of finding that priceless Saxon hoard that will make them rich and cement their place in detecting history. But as they go off on their adventures, real life keeps getting in the way. They embark on a journey of greed, betrayal, rejection and redemption as they hurtle towards Danbury Metal Detecting Club's greatest ever find. A six-part comedy for BBC Four, written and directed by Mackenzie Crook.
The Game is set during the 1970s and tells the story of the invisible war fought by MI5 to protect the nation from the threats of the Cold War. The series begins just as a KGB defector reveals the existence of a devastating Soviet plot. The charismatic but paranoid head of MI5 then assembles a secret team to investigate. The series, which has received an order for six hour-long episodes, is being produced by BBC Cymru Wales with Faith Penhale, Brian Minchin and Toby Whithouse serving as executive producers. It is due to air in Autumn 2014.
Here’s the low-down on Ruby Redfort: she’s a genius code-cracker, a daring detective, and a gadget-laden special agent who just happens to be a thirteen-year-old girl. She and her slick side-kick butler, Hitch, foil crimes and get into loads of scrapes with evil villains, but they’re always ice-cool in a crisis.
The first six books are due to be released on audio book, read by Rachael Stirling.
One of them went on the anti-war protest, shouted their lungs out, then got horrendously and staggeringly drunk. The other stayed at home, watched TV for a bit, and thought about the future. A touching, funny play about what happens when you hate your best friend.
