National Treasure

National Treasure

Robbie Coltrane (Harry Potter, Cracker) stars in this drama about a quiz show host, Paul Finchley, accused of having raped several women earlier in his career. The four-part series was inspired by the real-life Operation Yewtree, a large-scale police investigation into allegations against a number of media figures in the UK. Though the notorious Jimmy Savile was central to the operation, it ultimately helped empower numerous victims, and it led to a significant increase in reports to the police, as well as the arrest and conviction of other offenders (similar to the “Weinstein effect” in the US). 

Julie Walters (Calendar Girls, Harry Potter) plays Finchley's wife, while Andrea Riseborough (The Witness for the Prosecution) plays his daughter.
