Drama about the political scandal engulfing 1960s Britain known as the Profumo affair, which took place at the height of the Cold War and led to fears of a national security breach. At the centre of the storm was Secretary of State for War John Profumo's brief sexual relationship with 19-year-old Christine Keeler, a young woman whom the powerful, male-dominated establishment sought to silence and exploit, but who refused to play by their rules. Fact-based drama, starring Sophie Cookson, Ben Miles, James Norton, Ellie Bamber and Emilia Fox
