Yahoo! TV Giveaway: ‘The Hour’ on Blu-ray
On Tuesday (Sept. 27), the BBC is releasing the original miniseries "The Hour" on DVD and Blu-ray. Starring Dominic West ("The Wire"), Romola Garai ("Atonement"), and Ben Whishaw ("Brideshead Revisited"), "The Hour" is an intriguing edge-of-your-seat spy thriller set in the world of 1950s television journalism.
The two-disc DVD and Blu-ray sets include two featurettes: a behind-the-scenes look at the miniseries and a making-of special. Set behind the scenes of the BBC newsroom, just as an investigative news program is launched, 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.
Viewers witness a decade on the threshold of change — from the ruthless sexual politics behind the polite social façade of the '50s to the revelations that redefined the world for a new generation. Over the six episodes, the interplay and intense ambitions between the rising news team plays out against the backdrop of a mysterious murder and Freddie's controversial and dangerous investigation.
