About this Event:

Actor Tim Pigott-Smith and producer Kate Triggs introduce the premiere of BBC Four’s intimate new drama about PG Wodehouse’s fall from grace.

Wodehouse in Exile, produced by Great Meadow, explores how the man who defined Englishness became an exile from his own country. Starring Tim Pigott-Smith and Zoe Wanamaker, the drama tells how, in the summer of 1941, PG Wodehouse, the master of fanciful plots, became a major player in a tale of realpolitik. From an internment camp in Upper Silesia to broadcasting on German radio in Berlin and accusations of treachery, Wodehouse became a pawn in the biggest propaganda battle of the Second World War as the German Foreign Office tried to persuade the Americans to stay out of the war on the eve of Operation Barbarossa and the British to persuade America to join the Allies and save a beleaguered nation.

Presented by BBC Four, this is an opportunity to see a full screening of the film before it airs on television. This event lasts one hour 30 minutes.

A film premiere presented by BBC Four.
