November 1957. A year has passed since The Hour was unceremoniously taken off air for their controversial interview with Lord Elms and much has changed. Freddie has been fired and gone travelling, while Bel fought to stay. She has tried to improve the ratings and keep Hector in line, although he has now become a national celebrity and is drawn into the seductive glamour of Soho nightclub El Paradis; Bel's whole life is her work and she's becoming increasingly preoccupied with Britain's growing criminal underworld, chasing a story but without the manpower to tell it. All eyes are on the new Head of News, Randall Brown, as a force for change.
