Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Between the two World Wars, the British Fascist movement was spearheaded by the high-born but low-principled Oswald Mosley. In this four-part miniseries, Jonathan Cake starred as Mosley, with Jemma Redgrave as his beleaguered first wife Cynthia. The miniseries, paradoxically scripted by a famous team of British sitcom writers, focused as much on Mosley's serial philandering as it did on his political activities, meaning that for every re-creation of a Mosley fascist rally, there was a steamy bedroom scene, usually enacted in the nude. Mosley debuted over Britain's Channel 4 on February 12, 1998.
