Description

This BBC drama portrays the events leading up to and surrounding the disappearance at Gallipoli in 1915 of the Sandringham Company, made up of the King's household staff. Led by estate manager Captain Frank Beck (David Jason), the company left their rural existence to fight in the Great War, and the news of their deaths in battle brought home the reality of the conflict to the royals for the first time. After the war, the Royal Family sent a special envoy to the region to try and discover what had happened to the company, but the truth was never fully revealed.

Critic reviews

“Its political commentary is certainly blunt, but it's also a dynamic character drama full of excellent acting.”
Witney Seibold – Nerdist

“A blistering and still powerful political drama that deservedly won the best picture Oscar, with the best actor award going to gruff Broderick Crawford in the performance of a lifetime as Willie Stark.”
Tony Sloman – Radio Times

“A poisonous political process from our not-so-distant past dominates Robert Rossen's classic film about the rise of a Southern demagogue.”
Joe Morgenstern – Wall Street Journal
