If you don't find Joe for me, I am dead.
-Today's violence has put further pressure on the Prime Minister
after today's allegations about his financial affairs.
Dead man walking.
I've read Elspeth's file.
What do we want to achieve. with this information?
The end of Brian Worsley.
Tomorrow, Alex Wentworth will be appearing at a press conference.
My understanding is he's going to make new allegations against Worsley which he won't survive.
In front of the world's media. it'll be the perfect launching pad.
You are in danger. There is someone I know.
'And I'd like to talk to him and get his advice.'
'Harry, I've just seen Jason Styles.'
'Michael's been arrested.'
While you're in here keep your head down. You stand your ground.
Where is she?
-Who's Teddy Cockburn?
-There were photographs of him in the doctor's office.
You got your e-mail, your photographs, your bottle of Cockburn.
"We'll raise a glass of Cockburn's on 10th July."
Don't you want to know what happened to your brother?
Well, they say the truth sets you free - the truth is going to send me to prison.
You want to talk about the night your brother and his friend visited?
Somebody paid Paul Hillman and my brother to pull that trigger.
OK, no harm done, yeah.
That's where you're wrong, H.
Get a towel, something!
No, no, no H, no ambulance.
-You've just been bloody shot.
-Gunshot wound. The cops will be right behind them.
With my record, that's jail. Life.
Frank, this is bad. You don't have a choice, mate.
Bastard. Just get me out of the house.
-OK, this is going to hurt, mate.
Do you know what happened in this house 20 years ago?
The same night your uncle was shot, my parents were murdered.
I think my parents were killed for the same reason your uncle was killed.
-Which is what?
-That's what I'm trying to find out.
-Why do you think your uncle was killed?
-It was a robbery.
-Did they take anything?
-They bungled it. They panicked when the police showed up.
Did they look panicked when they shot your uncle?
Did they look panicked when they shot you?
There's a reason why your uncle was killed.
Did your uncle say anything unusual? Was there anything out of place?
The night before he was killed he had a visit.
What were you doing in there? We need to get him to hospital.
-How are you doing back there?
-Working on me story.
Did you get anything out of him?
All he said was Braddick received an unexpected visit the night
before he was killed... from James Morpeth.
-What was James Morpeth doing there?
-Morpeth was with another man, someone called Cockburn.
Do you know him?
Yeah. "We'll raise a glass of Cockburn's on 10th July."
-An e-mail Frank found.
Harry Venn and Gina Hawkes broke into the Braddick house 20 minutes ago.
Braddick? What did they want? What are they looking for?
That's not yet clear.
I am on my way there now.
-You do realise it's less than 20 hours to the main event.
-They're fumbling in the dark.
Well, people sometimes fumble their way to the light.
You take care of this problem, Mr Styles, before that happens.
Hey Frank how's your story coming along?
-Do you want to run it by me, as your solicitor?
-I really hope you and the girl make it.
If you do, the next time I see you, you won't be my solicitor.
You'll be sitting beside me in the dock.
Excuse me! This man's been badly hurt!
He needs to see a doctor! Straight away!
See you later.
Good evening, General, Mr Morpeth is expecting you.
Here, have a look at this. That's a photograph of Morpeth and Cockburn together.
It's a Spitfire. It's a bloody Spitfire.
Spitfire2 that's the e-mail address.
See how he responds to this.
Main event 1600, units here by 1620. Units here by 1635.
Hopefully with nothing else to do but sit on their hands.
-Just give me a moment.
You sent me an e-mail just now.
Yeah, I'm really looking forward to the party.
'I'm afraid you've lost me.'
You know, the party where we're going to be drinking lots of port.
Cockburn's port... My favourite.
Sorry, I didn't catch your name?
'What's your name? Spitfire2?'
-'I think you've got the wrong number.'
-No, you called me.
OK, let's have a listen to this.
Yes, the cost in North America is quite competitive.
-'You can find cheaper places but you need to...'
-The same voice.
Morpeth visits Braddick shortly before he's murdered.
That's no coincidence, he's involved.
I've just been talking to Harry Venn.
I'm forwarding the number. Track down that telephone, Mr Styles.
-'It's Joe Collins.'
Joe Collins? I've been looking for you, Joe.
-Where are you?
-'I'm at a hotel near Heathrow.'
TV: 'You were the chief leader writer of the main RDO media paper.
'Now, your boss, Elspeth Verney, not only is a very good friend of Alex Wentworth's,
'she's also a key supporter.
'So, what is he going to reveal tomorrow?'
'It's going to be damning. It's going to be very damning.
'I think we'll hear things about Brian Worsley that will shock and dismay
'even his most ardent supporters.'
KNOCK AT DOOR
TV: 'Alexander Wentworth's an extremely divisive figure...'
Harry, thank god.
I need money and a passport. Now!
Can you help me, pal? Can you? I wouldn't ask but I'm in real big trouble here.
Joe wait, Joe wait a minute. Just slow down.
This is Gina Hawkes. She's... Well, she was Stevie's solicitor.
-What's this all about?
-Anyone follow you?
What did Stevie tell ya?
Joe don't worry about that, just talk to me.
About a week ago, I got a call on my phone. This fella.
Called himself Styles.
Asked to meet. Said there was money in it.
Me and Stevie, we met him at the Embankment.
We talked for a couple of minutes,
then we got in his car and drove around for a bit more and he offered us a job.
-What was the job, what did he want you to do?
Me, you mean, me.
He wanted a...a sex crime.
What? He wanted it to LOOK like a sex crime?
No. He wanted us to go through with it.
So why is she alive?
We needed the money, bad, but the more this fella talked,
the less me and Stevie liked.
-When we got out of the car, I took something with us.
Worst decision I ever made.
He sent someone after us.
You know who?
You'll think I'm mad, but I'm not.
It was him, Harry. Back from the dead.
I'm not making this up, believe me.
Joe I believe you, all right?
Can you help me out here, Harry? Can ya?
Joe, Joe, where's the laptop? Where's the laptop?
"One more attempt until data wipe."
-Let's get out of here.
-Stevie thought we could bargain with them. Give it back, they'd leave us alone.
-But these people, they're not interested in doing any deal.
-Here. Here you go.
-Look at this.
-TV: 'Wentworth's backers now include
'Sir Nigel Fountain, who apparently has been working behind the scenes
'for weeks with industrialist, James Morpeth. The presence of such a senior legal figure...'
Nigel Fountain and James Morpeth?
Look after yourself, Joe.
'..given the constitutional crisis the government is facing,
'particularly given the job...'
-I know a bloke who should be able to hack into this computer.
-Let's go there now.
We can't, it's a shop. It's not open till the morning.
-'They're onto you, Harry. Get rid of the girl's phone.'
Who was that?
-Give me your phone. Give me your phone!
Grab hold of the laptop.
'You are within 100 metres of the device.
'Acquiring satellites. Please hold.'
'Satellites acquired. Triangulating now.'
Can't find the bloody ticket.
'The device is static and within 25 metres of your current location.'
Go, go, go, go, go, go.
Go! Come on!
What's the status now?
'The device remains static. We can now track to within ten metres.'
Ring Collins. Warn him about Styles. Now!
MOBILE CONTINUES TO RING
HE BREATHES HEAVILY
MOBILE CONTINUES TO RING
'This is Joe, leave me a message.'
Straight to voicemail.
Where's Harry Venn?
He was with you tonight when you got shot at the Braddick house.
Nah, not me.
I was out walking my dog, minding my own business...when bang!
Someone shoots me from a passing car.
-Where's your dog?
-Well, she run off, didn't she?
Would you blame her?
What did Harry want with Ben Lander?
Why did he go back to the house?
Did you just start speaking Chinese?
Because I didn't understand a word you just said.
Do you like Harry Venn?
He's my solicitor.
Do you like him? Would you call him a friend?
-Yeah, he's a good guy, Harry.
-Then do your friend a favour.
He's in serious trouble. Someone's trying to kill him.
-Like you give a shit!
-What about you?
Do you give a shit?
Because if you do, help me. I'm his only chance.
There you go again...talking Chinese.
Let's get you up to theatre.
I'm in a lot of trouble
and you're the only person I can trust.
This is Gina.
I'm Gina Hawkes.
Give us five minutes.
Harry, what's going on?
-Who is she?
Harry, look at you, you're shaking.
-What have you taken?
-He's alive, Lauren.
-I saw Paul Hillman. I saw him.
-Oh, my God. Is that blood?
I need to take a shower, a change of clothes.
-Just give me ten minutes.
In Britain, we rightly defend freedom of the press tenaciously.
But that freedom comes with responsibility.
It is not a licence for abuse of power.
The allegations against me are another example
of an over-weaning media corporation cynically manipulating the truth
in pursuit of a dangerous political agenda.
That was the Prime Minister earlier today.
Meanwhile, key Wentworth supporters, who include billionaire industrialist James Morpeth,
have called on the public to brace themselves for a body blow, not just to Brian Worsley,
but to the entire political establishment. Prime Minister Worsley, still no nearer...
-Where's the punch?
-It's tricky, Elspeth.
We don't know what Wentworth is going to say at the press conference.
If we over-hype this and he doesn't deliver, we end up looking really silly.
I want you out of this building, now.
Tomorrow, Alexander Wentworth will give the most sensational disclosures
ever made about a serving British Prime Minister.
That's what we need to see on this page.
James Morpeth will be with him.
We need his picture too, plus a profile. The full works.
He's going to be a major figure post-Worsley.
OK, we need to go.
Morpeth is going to be at the Wentworth press conference today.
Today is the 10th of July - the date in Morpeth's email.
"I'll raise a glass of Cockburn's on the 10th of July."
CAR HORN BEEPS
I called a taxi.
-Why did you call a taxi?
-I have to talk to Nigel.
I'm coming with you.
Gina, what's to stop him calling Styles again?
Don't go to see him. Call him. Talk to him on the phone.
Whatever it is he has to say,
I need him to look me in the eye and say it.
-Fine, but I'm coming with you.
-Harry, this is between Nigel and me.
I'll buy a new phone and call you.
Write down your number again.
I'm glad Stevie Quirke sent me to you.
-Are you OK?
-Have you talked to Michael?
-Yeah, he said you went to see him.
Didn't go too well.
That's not what he said.
He said you said some things to him that really made him think.
What was it? What did you say?
I was quite hard on him.
Well, whatever you said, he didn't take it that way.
It meant a lot to him.
Will you tell him I'm sorry for everything?
Harry, what do you mean by that?
-What's that, a gun?
..I love you.
-'Area forecasts for the next 24 hours -
'Viking, westerly or south-westerly,
'six or seven.
'Occasionally gale eight at first, except in the south.
'Decreasing four or five.
'Rain, then squally showers, moderate or poor, becoming good...
'...west or south west, five or six, decreasing, three or four.
'Then back in the south, four or five later.
'Rain, then fair, moderate or good, occasionally poor at first.
'Fisher, German Bight. South-west, five or six, veering west.
Becoming variable, three or four later.
'Rain variable, moderate or good, occasionally good...'
RADIO FADES OUT
Glad to have you on board. - Thank you for your support.
-Alexander needs to know if you're going to line up with him on this.
-This is difficult, Alex.
-You're asking me to sign up to something without telling me what it is.
you know what this country is up against. We are this close to collapse.
-That's why I'm asking you for your trust and support.
For now. IAN LAUGHS
-Only you could say that with a straight face, Alex.
-And not for long.
After the press conference, I'll go outside and address the rally.
Then I'm going to lead my supporters on a walk to Parliament.
-I'd like you to be beside me on that walk.
Mussolini's March on Rome, eh?
Except I'm not leading black-shirt reactionaries.
I'm walking with people who won't sit by while their country falls to pieces around their ears.
Some of those people happen to be Conservative, some Liberal, some on the left.
Most aren't interested in ideology and neither, frankly, am I.
I'm certainly not interested in the tried and tested British way
of staggering along and hoping something will come up.
In these circumstances, that is not a viable option.
Have a think. Your vote would mean a great deal.
'Welcome to the show.
'This morning, the nation waits with baited breath.
'The talk of the last 24 hours here at Westminster
'has been what exactly will Alexander Wentworth reveal to us all
'at his press conference later today.
'I'm joined now by the political editors of three national newspapers
'to fill us in on their take on what has got to be
'one of the most controversial periods.'
-'I need to see you.'
Do you think you can get into it?
I am in sort of a hurry here, Malcolm.
Was it a shock, finding I was still alive?
-They promised me nothing would happen to you. I have their word.
You're part of them, aren't you?
Who are they?
Why did they murder my parents?
-Why do they want to kill me?
-Gina, you have to believe me, I've only ever wanted to protect you.
Remember the first day I brought you to my house?
You were so lost, so sad, it was an awful time.
But it was that day my life really began, with you.
-I can still remember the first time you put your hand in mine.
You made me feel safe...
..you made me feel loved...
..until you sent a killer after me.
You've known all along why my parents were killed.
-When were you going to tell me?
-I had no part in it.
-Your parents were my friends. I had no idea they were going to be killed.
Why were they murdered?
Malcolm, how long is this going to take?
Doesn't normally take this long.
They were asked to help and they wouldn't cooperate.
Asked to help? What do you mean "would not cooperate"?
-There are rules!
-Yes, rules that have to be observed.
Who asked my parents for help?
-What kind of help?
-Gina, you don't want to know this.
You've seen me drive myself insane for 20 years trying to find out the truth.
So tell me.
Nigel, I have to know.
I have to.
Running out of time, Malcolm.
-That's his password.
And that is his file directory.
Your parents were still young, but they were a formidable legal team.
Well, you know that.
And they were approached to do some legal work by a man called Teddy Cockburn.
-What did Cockburn want my parents to do?
-Gina, please, listen to me.
In everybody's interests, particularly yours, you must stop asking these questions.
Your parents are dead, I'm sorry.
You have to believe me on this if on nothing else - I am truly sorry.
What did Cockburn want my parents to do?
'This is the help desk. May I have your client ID?'
-'Client ID, please.'
'For verification, can I have values one, three and eight of your protocol?'
'I repeat - values one, three, eight.' HARRY MUMBLES
F, F, three.
'Job number, please?'
'Please hold whilst I acquire.'
'How can I help?'
'The engineers are due on site at 15:55.
'Access and egress have been secured.
'Are you set up to receive on the device you are calling from?'
That's not possible.
MOBILE CONTINUES TO RING
Where are you?
Mark will be at the press conference. He's going after Wentworth.
'I have to stop him.'
Nigel's dead, they killed him.
Listen to me, Gina. Get out of London as fast as you can.
'Go to Paris, stay with Nadine, a friend,
'somewhere you can be safe.'
Are you OK?
Be careful, Harry.
OK. I'll...I'll call you later.
James Morpeth is here.
James, how are you?
Good to see you.
-They're just making me look beautiful for the cameras - give us a minute?
-Good idea, yes,
I'll leave you to it.
The girl got away again.
How was that possible?
Fountain. He intervened.
You need to get to the site.
Daddy's off to work now. I'll see you tonight.
CLAMOUR OF REPORTERS
Mr Morpeth, is Wentworth going to be the next Prime Minister?
-Do you have any political aspirations yourself?
-Is this about funds?
ALL CONTINUE TO SHOUT QUESTIONS
ALL: Mr Wentworth!
Mr Wentworth, what have you got on Worsley?
I think that's a question the whole country deserves an answer to and I'm looking forward
to giving the answer today.
Mr Wentworth, do you think you'll be Prime Minister tonight?
Well, that's not for me to decide.
Our boy certainly looks the part.
He looks exactly what he is.
Another plausible, ambitious PR man with a trust fund and a pretty wife.
Yes, poor thing has no idea what's coming.
Hi, excuse me, I need to ask a really big favour.
I've lost my press card - my mistake -
but I do need to get into the press conference.
-I'll just check the list. What's your name?
-I'm afraid you're not on the list.
-Sir. Is there a problem?
Yeah, there is a problem, I'm not on that list and I need to get into this press conference.
Well, if your name's not on the list, you're not coming in.
This isn't my mistake, it's yours. My name should be on that list.
If it's not on the list, you're not coming in.
-Put the phone down.
-I'm at the press conference. I suggest you get down here.
All right, all right!
-Get him down! Security breach.
We've just had a communication from head of security at the venue -
we're going in the back way.
Nothing to worry about.
TV: 'There's growing speculation and excitement
'about what Alexander Wentworth is going to say when he gets here.
'He's invited the world's media and the world's media have turned out.'
I don't know who and I don't know why, but I know it's going to happen.
-Get him out of here now!
-Did you just hear what I said?
-Someone's trying to kill Wentworth. It's what this is about.
-Are you in charge?
I am. Found him in a secure environment with a firearm.
-Do you know him?
-Yeah, I know him.
Harry, sit down.
What were you doing with the gun?
-Fuck the gun! Somebody's going to kill Wentworth!
-Yeah? Who's going to kill him?
-How many times? I don't know.
-Why does this person want to kill Wentworth?
You can keep dicking around with these questions, or you can do something about it.
But do it quick cos Wentworth will be dead in 20 minutes.
-Have you seen the amount of security out there?
-They can get to him.
Wake up, you're a detective! It's all connected. The Braddick hit, Stevie Quirke. It all leads to here!
Take him away.
OK, OK. I know what he looks like.
I don't know his name, but I know what he looks like. I can point him out.
Raise your arms.
Right, who are we looking for?
Mid-30s, medium build, he's over six foot. Dark hair.
If you even think of trying anything,
I'm going to let these guys shoot you.
-I have your badge.
Wentworth's in the building.
-Do you see him?
One moment, please.
We're just waiting for security clearance.
Still not nervous?
I feel the hand of history on my shoulder.
Well? Do you see him?
This is a waste of time. It's compromising security.
-Here. That's him! There!
-Striped tie, the grey suit. There, there
Come on, he's over there!
Let's go, sir.
REPORTERS SHOUT QUESTIONS
Who are you working for?
-Who are you working for?!
-On your feet, Venn!
-'Sensational revelations are still coming in thick and fast
'following the assassination
'of the billionaire industrialist James Morpeth,
'shot down in front of the world's media...'
'It's being said
'that the intended target was, in fact, Alexander Wentworth.
'And rumours are also gaining ground
'that the assassination and ensuing chaos
'will be used to justify some kind of coup...'
'Sources are suggesting
'the assassination may be linked to the death of Sir Nigel Fountain
'who was shot dead in Kew Gardens earlier the same day.'
So you deny you were involved in the assassination?
We've been doing this for three days. You catch on fast, Russell(!)
What about the Braddick murder?
You still deny that?
Why did you go to the house?
You know what, I've got nothing more to say.
It's just you and me Harry.
Off the record. OK?
This is what I think.
I think you found out something was going down at the press conference.
-You weren't clear what, but thought you might be able to stop it.
-And you had the gun because someone had tried to kill you.
-Bang on the money.
This is what else I think.
20 years ago, your brother Mark came to you
and he asked you to do a bit of driving for him.
You couldn't say no to Mark. He had balls, charisma.
You looked up to him, admired him.
I don't think you knew there was going to be a hit.
Listen, H, I don't blame you for going along with him.
The one I blame is Mark.
He was your big brother.
He took advantage of you, Harry.
I think you've been carrying a lot of guilt for a lot of years.
And that's too much for any man to carry.
This is a chance to get it off your chest.
A chance to start again.
That's very good. Tell me,
Did they make you re-train in interrogation techniques
because they wouldn't let you beat up prisoners any more? Cos I'm impressed, you know?
Just goes to show, you can teach an old dog.
But just so as we're clear, Fenton - do you mind if I call you Fenton?
Mark never asked me to drive
and I wasn't at the Braddick house.
You think you've got a case?
Fine, charge me.
Harold George Venn,
I hereby charge you with conspiracy to murder Geoffrey Philip Braddick
on April 8, 1989.
DOOR IS UNLOCKED
Your solicitor's here.
I always said I'd get in trouble just to have you as my lawyer.
I have to warn you.
The coffee's terrible.
I've drunk worse.
You're a brave man.
I got you a newspaper.
There's a government, at last.
So, they were going to use Wentworth's assassination
as an excuse for a coup?
That's the most popular theory, yes.
Why did Mark kill Morpeth and not Wentworth?
Harry, Morpeth wanted you dead.
Mark wasn't going to let that happen.
He's your brother.
We're not going to make a bail application today,
We don't have the package in place.
You'll be remanded in custody. Sorry.
Don't worry about me.
What about you?
Did you get what you needed from Nigel?
I got some answers.
I wasn't thinking that.
I know how much he meant to you.
He knew everything.
But he was trying to protect me.
Do you have anyone?
..do you have anyone to go to?
Let's face the music.
Sir, I appear for Mr Venn.
He will be vigorously contesting the charges against him.
Mr Venn is remanded in custody until the 28th of this month.
Go up the courtyard and wait.
What's going on?
What's going on?!
Oi! What's going on?
What are you doing here?
You think I'm going to sit there and watch them bang you up?
What's a big brother for, eh?
Lot of good it's done me(!)
Saved your arse once or twice.
You got me into this.
And now I'm getting you out.
And that's supposed to make it all right between us?
I don't have all day.
No, of course you don't.
You've waited 20 years, but you don't have another day.
We need to go.
I need a yes or no from you, Harry, and I need it quick.
Do you want me to get you out of here?
I've got myself a good lawyer.

As Harry and Gina get closer to putting the pieces of the puzzle together, could it be that his brother Mark holds the key to the mystery? Harry has to decide whether he is prepared to put everything on the line in a nail-biting climax.
