The Great Fire DVD

| DVD

Shortly after midnight on Sunday, 2 September 1666 a fire started in a London bakery, on Pudding Lane. This inferno burned its way into history as the Great Fire of London, raging for four days and bringing the Capital City to its very knees. Cathedrals, shops, inns were all lost and 70,000 of the City's 80,000 inhabitants were made homeless. The Great Fire brings that history to vibrant life through the eyes of the people on the ground. A cross section of society from King Charles II, to Samuel Pepys, to Thomas Farriner the King's baker in whose premises the fire... began. Written by ITV Political Editor Tom Bradby (Shadowdancer) it draws on his journalistic experience to recreate the chaos of a city imploding and the fear and rumours of treachery that took hold. This gripping new drama is from the makers of Fleming (Sky Atlantic) and the movie Mrs Brown. Featuring an all star cast, including Andrew Buchan, Jack Huston, Rose Leslie, Daniel Mays and Charles Dance. DVD Extras Behind The Scenes [show more]
