Relief of Belsen - The arrival of the untrained medics to the camp; 

"Iain Glen gave one of the great performances, in one take in the pouring rain, captured so well by Douglas Hartington."

                                                               - Justin Hardy 

Praise for 37 Days

“The skill of this brilliant production is the way it guides us, step by step, through the catastrophic chain of events that led to war.  Never have political negotiations been so absorbing. “ - Mike Mulvihill, THE TIMES

“37 Days is fabulous – a forensic political thriller, but still very human, as much about the people involved as the momentous events themselves. It's convincingly written and has loads of great performances, but Ian McDiarmid's Grey stands out. And the dates flicking past – 32 days to war, 30 days to war, 28 days to war – give the whole thing a sense of urgency and doom. Like an advent calendar, but the last window is a window on to hell.” – Sam Wollaston, THE GUARDIAN

"Justin Hardy directs with a lyrical feel for the awful intimacy of hand-to-hand fighting"
