The Hour takes us behind the scenes of a broadcast news room in London during the mid 50s, with a highly competitive, sharp witted and passionate love triangle at its core. At Lime Grove Studios, the BBC are launching The Hour, a new topical news program. At the heart of the show are three contrasting journalists: enigmatic producer Bel Rowley, a spirited woman in a man’s world, her best friend Freddie Lyon, a brilliant and passionate reporter, and a charming, well-connected front man, Hector Madden. As Freddie moves to cover a significant but controversial breaking story, the trio become entangled in an intense interplay of politics, ambition and romance, ignited by a mysterious murder and chilling conspiracy. Fifties London is brought to life in this tense drama, delivering an exquisite and stylish portrayal of a world on the threshold of momentous change.

Customer Reviews


I think that this is something that people need to understand when watching this show. When the first reviews came out, everyone was talking about how similar it is to Mad Men. Well, it's not. It's nothing like it at all. The entire series (so far) has been crafted brilliantly, with many fine details. Every single aspect of each episode is amazingly well thought out. I thought that with the thriller element it may be a bit cliche but there is nothing of that sort. The series really reflects how journalism worked in the 1950s and the political repercussions of reporting the truth.

I cannot recommend this show highly enough.


...will we ever have access to Episode 2??


Rubicon if it was British! Love it!
