The Old Ones are on their way and it's up to our heroes to fight for the right to live in peace.

THE HOUR

BBC AMERICA's Dramaville presents an encore broadcast of The Hour - which has earned three Golden Globe nominations including Best Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television. Created and written by BAFTA award-winning Abi Morgan (The Iron Lady, Shame, Sex Traffic), The Hour stars Golden Globe nominee Dominic West (The Wire), Golden Globe nominee Romola Garai (One Day, Emma) and Ben Whishaw (Skyfall, Bright Star) locked in a highly competitive, sharp witted and passionate love triangle. The series, set behind the scenes of the BBC's newsroom in London in the mid '50s, is an edge-of-your-seat spy thriller. It follows the lives of three characters as they set up a new weekly investigative news program, The Hour. The drama plots the personal lives, professional interplay and jealous ambition between aspiring but renegade journalist Freddie Lyon (Whishaw), the beautiful ambitious young producer Bel Rowley (Garai) with whom he is in love, and his handsome rival Hector Madden (West), the face and lead anchorman of this rising television news team.
