All my life, I've been a man of peace.

0:00:020:00:03

"We had not realised that our government was capable of..."

0:00:030:00:05

"Such folly and of such crookedness."

0:00:050:00:08

Ruth came to me to ask me to help her,

0:00:090:00:11

and I will not stop helping her until the truth is known.

0:00:110:00:14

The KGB have a list circulating.

0:00:140:00:16

On this list are the names of young men and women,

0:00:160:00:19

open to betraying their country.

0:00:190:00:22

-She was a Brightstone.

-Who, what?

0:00:220:00:24

Ruth Elms was a Brightstone.

0:00:240:00:25

Mr Brightstone... Was there anybody else you recognised?

0:00:270:00:30

Yes, you, Freddie.

0:00:300:00:32

You must tell Mr Lyon to stop investigating the Elms story.

0:00:330:00:36

There is not a Soviet agent on my team,

0:00:360:00:38

the BBC perhaps, but not my team.

0:00:380:00:41

-They can't shut us down.

-I've waited my entire life to run a programme like this.

0:00:410:00:45

It will not be snatched from me now.

0:00:450:00:46

We need to find a way of addressing the suspicion of collusion

0:00:460:00:50

between Britain and France, and Israel.

0:00:500:00:53

Like in a sketch.

0:00:530:00:54

Explain why you're throwing away your career for an affair that means nothing,

0:00:540:00:58

and if you're telling yourself anything other, you're lying.

0:00:580:01:01

He's always just on loan

0:01:010:01:03

and he always comes back.

0:01:030:01:05

Um, maybe a little higher?

0:02:130:02:15

Freddie, your mystery guest, he will be here, won't he?

0:02:180:02:21

If not, I have that bore from the British Communist Party

0:02:210:02:24

talking about the fall of Hungary and the effect on its members.

0:02:240:02:27

-Freddie?

-Let's hope so.

0:02:280:02:30

The footage of the demonstration, I want it in less than five minutes, Freddie!

0:02:310:02:35

What's the map for?

0:02:380:02:39

Um, Admiral Green, the logistics of a land invasion.

0:02:390:02:43

-Fact not opinion, Bel.

-Of course.

0:02:430:02:46

-What's Ron doing with a bookies' board?

-Isaac's sketch.

0:02:460:02:50

It's suicide.

0:02:500:02:51

It's satire.

0:02:510:02:53

-Satire is comment.

-Clarence, what would you have me do?

0:02:530:02:56

I have one piece of footage of a demonstration on which we cannot pass comment,

0:02:560:02:59

a reasonably dry interview with Admiral Green

0:02:590:03:02

and coverage of the American elections

0:03:020:03:04

the result of which will not be called until after we are off air. Freddie has an idea mid-programme.

0:03:040:03:10

I have 60 minutes to fill.

0:03:100:03:12

No!

0:03:120:03:13

The last 24 hours have been an exercise in how to air a news programme

0:03:180:03:23

that is taking place in less than two hours, when one can't discuss, analyse or debate the news.

0:03:230:03:29

I am allowing you to take this programme to the edge of acceptability,

0:03:290:03:33

so have your maps if you must, but Isaac's sketch does not play tonight.

0:03:330:03:37

Is it not our duty as journalists, to present balanced news,

0:03:370:03:41

frankly, fearlessly and reasonably?

0:03:410:03:44

Life is about compromise.

0:03:440:03:46

The country is at war. We cannot show dissent, we cannot show...

0:03:460:03:49

News! On a news programme!

0:03:490:03:52

It's absurd!

0:03:520:03:54

Hector, sweetheart, have we been swimming?

0:03:560:03:59

You two really need to sort this out.

0:04:020:04:04

You've missed a bit.

0:04:060:04:07

Sissy!

0:04:090:04:11

Coffee in my office now, please!

0:04:110:04:13

He slept in his office again, which by the way, is MY perk. Two nights.

0:04:180:04:23

Ah, Sissy, just the girl. Can you type up this copy for me? Thank you.

0:04:230:04:27

Have you seen Isaac? I typed up his script again, he keeps changing it.

0:04:270:04:31

He's ever such a perfectionist.

0:04:310:04:32

I've done the best I can.

0:04:330:04:35

I cut back the footage of the demonstration,

0:04:350:04:37

-removed the police officer attacking that man...

-Clarence wants to cut Isaac's sketch.

0:04:370:04:42

Every broadsheet is raising the issue of collusion.

0:04:450:04:48

I said that. But if we say that Britain colluded with Israel and France

0:04:480:04:51

in an illegal war to get the canal back we're effectively saying...

0:04:510:04:55

Eden lied to his Cabinet, his party and the Commons?

0:04:550:04:58

Yes.

0:04:580:04:59

But we don't say that.

0:05:010:05:02

We just acknowledge as the rest of the world is doing

0:05:020:05:05

that it is an intelligent possibility.

0:05:050:05:08

If we use the word "collusion", even in a sketch,

0:05:090:05:13

then that's treason, isn't it?

0:05:130:05:16

They could take us off air.

0:05:160:05:18

Put the policeman back in.

0:05:220:05:24

Tell Isaac to take that hat off in case Clarence sees him.

0:05:240:05:27

Oh, Christ! Hector!

0:05:320:05:35

I'm sorry.

0:05:380:05:39

You can't sleep in your office.

0:05:410:05:44

Right.

0:05:450:05:46

You need to go home to Marnie.

0:05:500:05:53

Right.

0:05:530:05:54

Aren't you going to say anything else?

0:05:540:05:57

I love you.

0:05:570:05:58

Is that the best you can do?

0:05:590:06:01

-For the moment, yes.

-What does that actually mean?

0:06:030:06:06

-It's pretty self-explanatory.

-It isn't. It really, really isn't.

0:06:060:06:10

Explain! I'm sorry, you love me.

0:06:100:06:14

But is this a proposal?

0:06:150:06:17

-Ooh, how exciting. When were you thinking, June?

-Why are you doing this?

0:06:170:06:21

Because you would want me to play bridge and stop working here,

0:06:210:06:25

the place that I love, doing the job that I have waited my whole life for.

0:06:250:06:28

I'm not asking you to marry me!

0:06:280:06:30

So what were you asking me? You want me to stay as your mistress?

0:06:300:06:34

Oh, it's heaps of fun having a mistress.

0:06:340:06:36

Heaps of fun being a mistress.

0:06:360:06:38

It's just what every marriage needs.

0:06:380:06:40

-I have done it once too often.

-Enough!

0:06:400:06:42

I don't want to be a mistress any more.

0:06:450:06:47

And I, I'm certainly not waiting to be anyone's wife.

0:06:480:06:53

You need a wife.

0:07:000:07:02

Have you seen Freddie?

0:07:060:07:07

-No.

-Shouldn't you be down on the floor?

0:07:070:07:10

Excuse me.

0:07:310:07:32

Please follow me.

0:07:400:07:42

-Freddie.

-I know, I know, I heard...

-My office, if you wouldn't mind.

0:08:090:08:13

Well, I'll just...

0:08:150:08:16

These gentlemen work for Her Majesty's Government.

0:08:190:08:22

-Really?

-They wish to ask you a few questions.

0:08:250:08:28

I hope that is acceptable to you, Mr Lyon.

0:08:280:08:30

-Do I have a choice?

-We note you didn't do National Service, Mr Lyon.

0:08:300:08:34

-No.

-We've been aware of your activities for some time.

0:08:340:08:37

-We understand you have been pursuing the death of Peter Darrall.

-Yes.

0:08:370:08:41

And that you've approached an eminent peer and his family as part of your investigation.

0:08:410:08:46

As you're aware, they have suffered a recent loss.

0:08:460:08:48

I'm sure they would prefer to be left alone in their grief.

0:08:480:08:51

-Yeah, you're very sure.

-Thankfully I have been given reassurance by your editor

0:08:510:08:55

that you have now closed your investigation, that there was no story to be found.

0:08:550:09:00

FREDDIE LAUGHS

0:09:040:09:05

Is that it?

0:09:070:09:08

Is that how it works? Am I being signed off?

0:09:100:09:13

I suppose there are worse ways to go.

0:09:140:09:17

Robbery, heart attack or suicide, I've heard. Is that true?

0:09:180:09:21

Please forgive Mr Lyon, he's very, very tired.

0:09:230:09:25

None of us has slept more than a few hours over the last few weeks

0:09:250:09:29

and we do have a programme to get out.

0:09:290:09:31

I am impressed. I wasn't sure if any of you could talk.

0:09:310:09:35

-Well, time is moving on.

-Mr Fendley has kindly vouched for your good character.

0:09:350:09:39

We will not bother you again.

0:09:390:09:41

Did you kill her?

0:09:420:09:44

Did you murder Ruth Elms?

0:09:440:09:46

Freddie.

0:09:460:09:47

Good afternoon, Mr Lyon. ..Mr Fendley.

0:09:490:09:52

Goodbye.

0:09:550:09:56

-Is that really it?

-They are merely collectors.

0:10:030:10:06

They collect information and pass it onto colleagues who verify or deny what they have found.

0:10:060:10:10

-They are seekers of truth in their own way.

-I've been following this story for months.

0:10:100:10:14

With you silently encouraging me, Clarence.

0:10:140:10:17

And now I am quietly asking you to stop.

0:10:170:10:20

I had to ask Douglas to use his considerable influence in Whitehall

0:10:220:10:26

to get them off your back.

0:10:260:10:28

-I'm on a list!

-Ssh.

0:10:280:10:30

Close the door.

0:10:390:10:41

What list?

0:10:470:10:48

Of potential KGB recruits.

0:10:480:10:50

Brightstones, they call them.

0:10:500:10:52

Revert to Brightstone.

0:10:520:10:55

Was Peter Darrall giving someone the nod to find a new Brightstone to replace him?

0:10:550:11:00

What, you've seen this list?

0:11:000:11:02

No. But I've spoken to someone who has.

0:11:020:11:04

Someone who would be willing to come on the show, maybe even talk about Ruth's death.

0:11:040:11:08

The Elms case is tragic, but it is not news.

0:11:080:11:11

It's time to terminate it.

0:11:150:11:16

Terminate?

0:11:160:11:18

Too personal a story.

0:11:180:11:20

What is the news if it's not personal, Clarence?

0:11:200:11:23

It's all personal, otherwise why write about it?

0:11:230:11:26

If it doesn't matter to you personally

0:11:260:11:28

then what kind of person are you?

0:11:280:11:31

I'm on that list. So was Ruth.

0:11:320:11:34

Someone put us there.

0:11:340:11:36

Sit down, Freddie.

0:11:370:11:39

What I'm about to tell you, you can't reveal it, as there's a mole at the BBC.

0:11:500:11:54

But it might help you lay the Elms case to rest.

0:11:540:11:57

In March, I received a transcript of a telephone call

0:11:570:12:00

between a high-ranking member of the government...

0:12:000:12:04

and a key operative in the Secret Service.

0:12:040:12:06

It confirms an unofficial order bypassing the Foreign Office,

0:12:060:12:11

going straight to MI6 to bring down Nasser by whatever means they can.

0:12:110:12:16

To assassinate him?

0:12:160:12:18

In the transcript, two agents are mentioned.

0:12:180:12:22

Peter Darrall and Tom Kish.

0:12:220:12:25

Freddie, Nasser's attempted assassination is a bigger story.

0:12:250:12:30

I'm asking you to draw a line under this. You are at risk.

0:12:300:12:37

Can't you see that?

0:12:370:12:39

KNOCK ON DOOR

0:12:390:12:41

Have you seen Hector? I've written him a new intro for Eisenhower.

0:12:410:12:44

Lix, I need you to telephone your man in Cairo.

0:12:520:12:55

-I need you to ask him to dig deeper.

-What's wrong, you're sweating?

0:12:550:12:58

I need to know everything about that trip Kish and Darrall made to Cairo.

0:12:580:13:02

-What were they doing there? Please, just do it.

-All right, all right. I just need some time.

0:13:020:13:07

-Everyone on set now, please.

-Yes.

-We're live in 20 minutes!

-We're coming!

0:13:070:13:10

Ron, can you move the top right?

0:13:120:13:15

-Oi, Billy Wilder, where do you want this?

-Oh, perhaps behind the flat.

0:13:150:13:18

-It needs chalking up.

-No one said anything about chalking up.

-I'll do it.

0:13:180:13:22

Isaac, can you wrap it up? Clarence will be here any minute.

0:13:220:13:25

Marnie.

0:13:330:13:35

Oh.

0:13:350:13:36

Hector needed a clean shirt. And suit.

0:13:370:13:41

I was afraid that he might not have changed it all week.

0:13:410:13:45

It's that way.

0:13:450:13:46

Oh, good luck. For tonight.

0:13:480:13:50

Daddy's very excited wondering how it's all going to play.

0:13:500:13:53

I'm sure he'll be brilliant...Hector.

0:13:530:13:56

Ron, can I...?

0:14:020:14:04

It's fine just don't worry about it.

0:14:040:14:06

15 minutes, people. 15 minutes!

0:14:070:14:09

I wasn't sure if you'd prefer your navy or grey, so I took a decision.

0:14:110:14:15

-What are you doing here?

-We tried the Dorchester, Savoy,

0:14:150:14:19

Claridges and you don't seem to be staying anywhere.

0:14:190:14:22

Have you even shaved today?

0:14:220:14:23

There's some clean undergarments and socks in the bag, and a fresh razor.

0:14:230:14:27

Shall I just...just put it here?

0:14:280:14:31

Yes. It's fine. Look, don't flap.

0:14:310:14:34

I do hope it didn't get terribly crushed in the underground.

0:14:340:14:37

Are you coming home?

0:14:400:14:42

< Camera check, five minutes...

0:14:470:14:49

Your toothbrush, there's a...toothbrush.

0:14:490:14:52

Thank you.

0:14:520:14:55

I said I'd meet Daddy upstairs any minute now, so...

0:14:570:15:01

Douglas has invited us for drinks.

0:15:010:15:04

Daddy thinks he's worried, that he might have got wind of something.

0:15:050:15:09

Apparently a number of opportunities have been opening up for you.

0:15:090:15:14

-He can't believe how silly you've been, the damage you could have caused.

-Marnie...

0:15:150:15:21

I will give you today, Hector,

0:15:220:15:26

but if you don't come home... I will divorce you.

0:15:260:15:30

There's only so much humiliation one girl can take.

0:15:320:15:35

Oh.

0:15:380:15:39

There he is.

0:15:410:15:43

Daddy?

0:15:440:15:46

RINGING TONE

0:15:480:15:50

PHONE RINGS

0:15:540:15:57

You all right?

0:16:130:16:15

Sissy's calling last checks.

0:16:150:16:18

She's dumped you.

0:16:260:16:28

It gets better.

0:16:320:16:33

A couple of months, you won't feel like slitting your wrists

0:16:330:16:37

every time you see her.

0:16:370:16:38

You should write this down.

0:16:410:16:42

-I'm sure it'd make a good novel.

-Already tried.

0:16:420:16:45

You just smile and say your lines.

0:16:460:16:48

The rest I'm sure you can sort later.

0:16:480:16:50

You patronising bastard.

0:16:500:16:52

I proved myself over the last three months,

0:16:520:16:54

more than proved myself,

0:16:540:16:55

-and just cos I haven't got your wit...

-Oh, self pity.

0:16:550:16:58

..your banter and your dexterity, your armoury of words,

0:16:580:17:01

designed to floor, to floor me.

0:17:010:17:03

-Just cos I'm too polite to ask provocative questions...

-And again.

0:17:030:17:06

Shut up!

0:17:060:17:09

You'll, um, need to prep for another interview.

0:17:170:17:22

Mid-programme.

0:17:220:17:24

-With who?

-I've jotted down a few questions.

0:17:240:17:28

Oh, my God.

0:17:300:17:32

Does Bel know?

0:17:320:17:34

She's humouring me she doesn't, but she does.

0:17:340:17:38

He's not going to answer these questions,

0:17:380:17:40

-and I'm not going to ask them.

-Fine.

0:17:400:17:42

There's one or two that's all right.

0:17:420:17:44

Do you think I'm a weak person, Hector?

0:17:460:17:49

What?

0:17:490:17:50

I've never been to war, I've never fought for anything...

0:17:520:17:57

You fight every day, Freddie.

0:17:580:18:00

Weak's not the word I'd use.

0:18:000:18:02

My father always said a hero is a man who's too afraid to run away.

0:18:030:18:07

If you want we can, um...

0:18:110:18:13

..run through those together on the floor.

0:18:140:18:17

Freddie, I'm going to give you all your birthdays,

0:18:220:18:25

Christmases and holidays at once.

0:18:250:18:27

There's a story circulating the foreign press.

0:18:270:18:31

It's all conjecture, but in May...

0:18:310:18:35

Nasser's dentist was approached with a bribe to poison Nasser.

0:18:350:18:38

Two MI6 operatives met with him, posing as British diplomats.

0:18:380:18:42

I know.

0:18:420:18:44

Freddie, you need to hear this.

0:18:440:18:46

Apparently...apparently they had a female companion with them.

0:18:480:18:53

Pretty girl, blonde, well educated.

0:18:540:18:57

-No.

-Freddie, it was Ruth.

0:18:570:19:00

She was the bait.

0:19:000:19:02

It seems as though there was nothing she wouldn't have done

0:19:020:19:05

for Peter Darrall.

0:19:050:19:06

She was working with them, Freddie.

0:19:060:19:09

I'm sorry.

0:19:100:19:12

Hector, how did you get on...?

0:19:130:19:15

-LOUDSPEAKER:

-All staff on The Hour to studio D, please!

0:19:260:19:30

Five minute introduction, factual report on the Suez demonstration,

0:19:330:19:39

intercut with footage, then we're back to the studio

0:19:390:19:41

for military analysis of the ground invasion

0:19:410:19:43

with Admiral Green - see if he's here yet.

0:19:430:19:45

-Lix?

-Move on to coverage of the United States.

0:19:450:19:47

Montgomery does general assessment of the election

0:19:470:19:50

then canvasses opinion of the wider political landscape.

0:19:500:19:53

-Isaac's sketch...

-Miss Rowley, five minutes.

0:19:530:19:55

Clear the set, please, five minutes!

0:19:550:19:57

Mark?

0:19:570:19:59

Thank you.

0:19:590:20:00

Why's Isaac got a moustache?

0:20:010:20:04

Er, Guy Fawkes.

0:20:040:20:05

That was yesterday.

0:20:050:20:07

LAUGHTER

0:20:080:20:10

Extraordinary technology...

0:20:110:20:13

THEY CHATTER INAUDIBLY

0:20:130:20:15

Yes.

0:20:180:20:19

-I want them off my set.

-We'll be watching from the Executive bar upstairs.

0:20:190:20:24

-That's meant to comfort me?

-Good luck.

0:20:240:20:26

Clarence?

0:20:260:20:29

Mr Lyon.

0:20:330:20:34

You're very chirpy tonight.

0:20:340:20:36

Well, one must remain optimistic.

0:20:360:20:38

Wonderful piece this morning in the Daily Express,

0:20:380:20:41

rallying around our Prime Minister in the midst of such sniping.

0:20:410:20:44

I bought 12 copies, handed them out.

0:20:440:20:46

Boosted party morale.

0:20:460:20:48

Nothing like rearranging the deckchairs as the hull starts to tip.

0:20:480:20:51

Will you ever tire of such cynicism?

0:20:510:20:53

Hope you're cosying up to Macmillan.

0:20:530:20:55

Be terribly cold for you when this is all over.

0:20:550:20:58

Where will you go when all the dirty secrets come out?

0:20:580:21:02

One word of dissent in this time of war and...

0:21:030:21:06

They shot deserters for less.

0:21:060:21:09

Freddie, see you upstairs afterwards for a drink?

0:21:090:21:12

Ringside seats.

0:21:120:21:14

Mr Lyon, time.

0:21:140:21:15

I feel sick.

0:21:170:21:18

Don't be wet.

0:21:180:21:20

Hector.

0:21:230:21:24

Douglas invited me down.

0:21:270:21:29

To keep an eye on me?

0:21:290:21:30

SHERWIN CHUCKLES

0:21:300:21:32

Marnie insisted.

0:21:360:21:38

Thought you might need the support tonight.

0:21:380:21:41

Mr Madden, they're waiting.

0:21:410:21:43

That's fine, thank you.

0:21:430:21:44

Cigarette out, please, sir.

0:21:440:21:46

She's beside herself.

0:21:530:21:55

This is not the time.

0:21:550:21:57

Do you have any idea what you are risking here?

0:22:000:22:03

I couldn't care less

0:22:030:22:05

what antics you're embroiled in in your private life,

0:22:050:22:08

just don't bring them into your marriage.

0:22:080:22:11

You have only one of those, Hector, and one career.

0:22:110:22:15

Now, you make them both work or neither will.

0:22:150:22:18

Don't tell me what to do, Wallace.

0:22:180:22:20

I married your daughter, not you.

0:22:200:22:22

Don't get ahead of yourself, Hector.

0:22:220:22:24

See your limits, like the rest of us do.

0:22:240:22:27

Success is in your hands.

0:22:270:22:30

Think about where your loyalties lie.

0:22:300:22:32

Don't be ashamed to let yourself down, now you've got this far.

0:22:320:22:37

HE SIGHS

0:22:450:22:47

So, Admiral, you will notice two lights, two cameras.

0:22:470:22:51

-When the light turns red.

-Yes, yes, I look...

0:22:510:22:54

Mr Madden will introduce you before you give your presentation.

0:22:540:22:57

-Admiral Green, delighted you could join us tonight.

-Very good.

0:22:570:23:00

-Ron will show you where you're sitting.

-Righty-ho.

0:23:000:23:03

Hurry up, Daddy, it's almost starting.

0:23:060:23:08

There we are.

0:23:080:23:09

-Um, Clarence.

-Thank you.

0:23:090:23:12

-Is your guest here yet?

-No.

0:23:170:23:20

And a penitent communist won't cut it.

0:23:210:23:23

He will if you don't fill that slot, Freddie.

0:23:230:23:26

-I am serious, I have really stuck my neck out for you.

-He'll come.

0:23:260:23:31

What's wrong?

0:23:310:23:33

-Tell me.

-Nothing.

0:23:330:23:35

He'll come.

0:23:350:23:37

If he's not here by the end of the second slot, then...

0:23:380:23:41

Ron, cue up our communist chap for the last slot if I give you the nod.

0:23:420:23:48

Are you coming up?

0:23:480:23:51

Moneypenny.

0:23:510:23:53

Whatever happens tonight, we, um...

0:23:530:23:56

we mustn't regret a minute of it.

0:23:560:23:58

Um, good luck, everyone.

0:24:090:24:12

Let's make this an extraordinary show for extraordinary times.

0:24:120:24:15

And, Ron, keep the bloody boom out of shot.

0:24:150:24:19

LAUGHTER

0:24:190:24:20

Ladies and gentlemen, are we ready?

0:24:200:24:23

-Oh, Angus, please.

-Thank you.

0:24:270:24:29

Best seat in the house.

0:24:290:24:30

You got a bit of glue on you.

0:24:450:24:47

Do you think the moustache is too much?

0:24:470:24:49

No, it's very dashing.

0:24:490:24:51

Break a leg.

0:24:510:24:52

Hope not.

0:24:520:24:54

-No, no, it's just what you say when...

-No, no, I know, yes.

0:24:540:24:57

Sorry, funny.

0:24:570:25:00

-Freddie...

-All present and correct.

0:25:010:25:03

You know they put donkeys in with racehorses to calm them down.

0:25:030:25:08

You all right?

0:25:080:25:10

Fine.

0:25:100:25:12

Standby for count down.

0:25:160:25:17

-Will you be able to see?

-Yes.

0:25:170:25:19

Wonderful team effort.

0:25:220:25:25

I do hope it doesn't all go to waste.

0:25:250:25:27

Five...

0:25:430:25:44

..four...

0:25:450:25:47

..three...

0:25:480:25:49

..two...

0:25:500:25:52

..one - go straight to studio.

0:25:530:25:56

Good evening.

0:25:560:25:57

Welcome to The Hour in this most extraordinary week.

0:25:570:26:01

In the last seven days, Britain and France have invaded Egypt.

0:26:010:26:04

A vast military operation is underway there,

0:26:040:26:08

and we are fortunate to have Admiral Green with us here -

0:26:080:26:11

one of the leading experts in tactical warfare.

0:26:110:26:14

-Admiral Green, thank you for joining us tonight.

-Thank you.

0:26:140:26:17

-That's the wrong camera.

-Wrong camera!

0:26:170:26:20

Wrong camera!

0:26:200:26:21

Wrong camera.

0:26:210:26:22

-And we have this very handy map to demonstrate.

-Yes.

0:26:260:26:29

Would you like to show us exactly how the French

0:26:290:26:32

-and British invasion unfolded?

-Absolutely.

0:26:320:26:34

At 05:15 hours yesterday, British airborne forces

0:26:340:26:38

were dropped on Gamil airbase, five miles west of Port Said.

0:26:380:26:45

After a fierce fight, they successfully took the airfield,

0:26:450:26:49

while French airborne troops landed south of Port Said.

0:26:490:26:53

Certainly efficient.

0:26:540:26:56

This success paves the way for advance on military targets further south.

0:26:560:27:02

Standby on the Eisenhower election campaign - how we doing?

0:27:030:27:05

Two minutes 13.

0:27:050:27:07

In your view, how well planned was this operation?

0:27:070:27:10

It's impressive,

0:27:100:27:11

the speed with which it's been organised - commendable.

0:27:110:27:14

Yes. Hear hear!

0:27:140:27:16

And it's our duty to continue

0:27:160:27:17

until the whole of the Canal Zone is once more under British and French control.

0:27:170:27:22

Nut?

0:27:250:27:26

Yes, why not?

0:27:260:27:27

-This is the only way to bring stability.

-Let's hope so.

0:27:290:27:33

-Thank you very much, Admiral.

-Thank you very much.

0:27:330:27:36

So far, so good.

0:27:360:27:37

And now it's over to America, with news coming in that Eisenhower has taken Texas.

0:27:380:27:43

Here is a report from our man in Washington, Robert Montgomery,

0:27:430:27:46

who sent this from the Election Trail.

0:27:460:27:49

Thank you.

0:27:490:27:50

-MONTGOMERY:

-'Certainly canvassing opinion it is clear

0:27:500:27:53

'that Eisenhower seems on course to win.

0:27:530:27:57

'But there are those who believe his surge in popularity has been

0:27:580:28:01

'in part bolstered by his refusal to be drawn into the crisis in Suez.'

0:28:010:28:06

-AMERICAN INTERVIEWEE:

-'Your Prime Minister may have

0:28:060:28:08

-'defended Suez in your economic interest.'

-Oh, Christ.

0:28:080:28:11

'But from an American perspective, well, we'd be asking questions.'

0:28:110:28:15

Clarence?

0:28:150:28:16

'That's why I voted for Eisenhower,

0:28:160:28:19

'because he kept the hell out of there.'

0:28:190:28:21

Whose idea was this?

0:28:210:28:23

Views expressed by foreign nationals do not contravene the rule.

0:28:230:28:29

HE SIGHS

0:28:330:28:35

The protests in London are in response to events in Suez,

0:28:350:28:39

and our country is divided.

0:28:390:28:41

Oh, God, what next?

0:28:410:28:44

-We've been on the streets of London this week...

-Stand by, TC.

0:28:440:28:47

-And this is what we saw...

-Cue TC.

0:28:470:28:50

We're standing in a side street by Trafalgar Square.

0:28:500:28:53

You can see the crowds behind me.

0:28:530:28:55

"Law Not War" is the message they are taking to Downing Street today.

0:28:550:29:00

You can hear the crowds chanting, "one, two, three, four,

0:29:000:29:04

"we won't fight in Eden's war,"

0:29:040:29:06

as they snake their way from every corner along Whitehall.

0:29:060:29:11

I met a man who'd come down from Carlisle this morning,

0:29:110:29:14

another from Lincolnshire...

0:29:140:29:16

Come back on the sound levels a bit. Time?

0:29:160:29:18

12 minutes 14 seconds.

0:29:180:29:20

REPORTER: Madam, I notice you're wearing medals. May I ask you which regiment?

0:29:200:29:24

Royal East Kent Regiment.

0:29:240:29:26

-He looks nervous tonight.

-Mmmm.

0:29:260:29:30

REPORTER: Your husband's?

0:29:300:29:32

Son, and...

0:29:320:29:34

I don't want to lose another,

0:29:340:29:36

not that I don't know what we're fighting for.

0:29:360:29:39

-I notice that you've brought his daughter here today.

-She never knew him, I...

0:29:390:29:43

I want her to remember today.

0:29:430:29:45

'If Sir Anthony Eden is sincere

0:29:480:29:52

'in what he is saying, and he may be...'

0:29:520:29:55

Um, anyone for a top-up?

0:29:550:29:59

-No, thank you.

-'..If he is sincere in what he is saying, then he is too stupid to be a Prime Minister!'

0:29:590:30:05

CROWD CHEERS ON TV

0:30:050:30:07

Good on the Green interview.

0:30:130:30:15

-I would've been harder.

-You weren't interviewing.

0:30:150:30:17

Get the communist chap ready. I can't wait any longer, Freddie.

0:30:170:30:21

He's not coming! Where are you going?

0:30:210:30:24

Let me make one more phone call.

0:30:240:30:28

Isaac, get ready. We're going straight to the sketch.

0:30:280:30:31

-TV: 'The police have gone bleeding mad.

-They're just hitting out at anybody.

0:30:340:30:38

'A woman's on the floor. No-one's helping her.'

0:30:380:30:41

'It's becoming heated. You can see people running all over the place.

0:30:410:30:45

'There are police on horseback desperately trying to control the fray.'

0:30:450:30:50

A little harsh.

0:30:520:30:54

No laws broken yet, Angus.

0:30:540:30:57

Maybe I'd better have that top-up.

0:30:590:31:03

Time.

0:31:070:31:09

Five.

0:31:090:31:10

Four.

0:31:100:31:11

Three. Two.

0:31:130:31:15

One. Back to studio.

0:31:150:31:18

PHONE RINGS OUT

0:31:180:31:21

It was Ovid who said a horse never runs so fast

0:31:250:31:28

as when he has other horses to catch up and outpace.

0:31:280:31:32

-What now?

-'Here at The Hour, we thought what better way to view the fast-unfolding events of recent days

0:31:320:31:37

'than by our very own day at the races?'

0:31:370:31:41

And what a beautiful day it is,

0:31:430:31:45

as punters place their last bets for this key race.

0:31:450:31:49

You can see them lining up at the post. One or two are frisky.

0:31:490:31:52

There's Colonel Nasser in the red, white and black...

0:31:520:31:55

Sketch?

0:31:550:31:56

You never said anything about a sketch.

0:31:560:31:59

There's the stars and stripes. President Eisenhower,

0:31:590:32:02

he's got the blinkers on, but his nose is set.

0:32:020:32:07

Yes, Eisenhower's hoping for electoral victory today.

0:32:070:32:10

And from where we're standing, it could be any man's race.

0:32:100:32:14

And they're off!

0:32:140:32:15

It's a good start for Rule Britannia

0:32:150:32:17

and Mademoiselle Francaise, heading off at a steady pace.

0:32:170:32:21

What is he saying?

0:32:210:32:23

I think it's a play on horse racing, Daddy.

0:32:230:32:27

You see, there's rather witty odds on Rule Britannia

0:32:270:32:30

and Mademoiselle Francaise to win.

0:32:300:32:32

It's a bloody farce.

0:32:320:32:35

What fun!

0:32:350:32:37

And there's no stopping

0:32:370:32:39

the Colonel. He's a good nose ahead.

0:32:390:32:42

And the United Nations are clearly flagging...

0:32:420:32:45

Fall back a bit.

0:32:470:32:49

Eisenhower's fallen back, his eye on the long game.

0:32:490:32:52

Amy, will you double check that there are no messages for me?

0:32:520:32:57

He's threatening to invade. He's invading.

0:32:570:33:01

Colonel Nasser is not happy.

0:33:010:33:03

The Israeli is in suspect form.

0:33:040:33:07

Look out, here come the American press.

0:33:130:33:17

And the American press are voicing concern.

0:33:170:33:19

Two riderless horses are moving in.

0:33:190:33:22

Man Of Peace and Illegal War.

0:33:240:33:27

Rule Britannia and Mademoiselle Francaise are clearly astounded.

0:33:290:33:32

Looks like Man Of Peace will undoubtedly win this race.

0:33:320:33:36

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, this is mayhem.

0:33:360:33:39

I've never seen the like. It is mayhem today!

0:33:390:33:42

Illegal War will now take over Man Of Peace to cross the line.

0:33:420:33:46

I specifically said no sketch!

0:33:460:33:49

The steward is waving his flag.

0:33:500:33:52

Just bring the bloody lights down.

0:33:520:33:56

..in a fury - there's sure to be an enquiry.

0:33:560:34:01

Stop it. Bring the lights down if you have to. Now!

0:34:010:34:04

Ladies and gentleman, the race has been pulled

0:34:040:34:06

as the riderless horses cross the line in a photo finish.

0:34:060:34:10

So, this is the BBC?

0:34:210:34:26

Where do you want me?

0:34:260:34:27

Ladies and gentlemen, all bets are off.

0:34:270:34:30

There are no winners today.

0:34:300:34:32

Bring the lights up on Hector.

0:34:320:34:34

Are you completely, completely mad? I said no sketch.

0:34:370:34:40

I specifically said no sketch! What the hell are you doing?

0:34:400:34:43

Trying to stay on air. We're still live.

0:34:430:34:46

Stand by with the Communist Party interview.

0:34:490:34:52

Counting down.

0:34:540:34:55

Five, four,

0:34:550:34:57

three, two, one.

0:34:570:35:01

We're joined in the studio

0:35:010:35:03

by a member of the British Communist Party, who is...

0:35:030:35:06

Different interview. Get our comrade out.

0:35:060:35:09

I'm terribly, sorry, ladies and gentlemen, that, er...

0:35:090:35:12

that interview won't be happening.

0:35:120:35:14

-And what do we have next?

-This is my programme.

0:35:140:35:17

-You left tonight in my hands.

-Bel, dear,

0:35:170:35:20

you might want to see this.

0:35:200:35:22

Thattaboy.

0:35:270:35:29

I must apologise for the technical fault.

0:35:290:35:31

There are gremlins everywhere. But that will not stop us tonight.

0:35:310:35:36

Our next guest, Lord Elms of Framlingham...

0:35:360:35:38

What was Hector thinking of? This could ruin him.

0:35:380:35:42

What's he doing here?

0:35:420:35:43

'..Is a Conservative peer...'

0:35:430:35:45

I don't know. I'll find out.

0:35:450:35:47

..in light of the momentous events of the last week.

0:35:470:35:51

The House of Lords, of course, is one of our oldest institutions and, er...

0:35:520:35:58

-Is he bottling it?

-Yes.

0:36:000:36:03

..keeping an eye on the actions and decisions of Government...

0:36:030:36:07

PHONE RINGS

0:36:070:36:10

Yes.

0:36:100:36:12

..Bringing a wealth of experience, making laws, legislation, public policy...

0:36:120:36:19

I'll try to find out.

0:36:190:36:20

You're going to have to explain to Douglas

0:36:200:36:24

why no-one was informed that Lord Elms would be joining us on the programme tonight.

0:36:240:36:28

Keep going.

0:36:360:36:37

..perspective on legislation.

0:36:370:36:39

Tonight, Lord Elms...

0:36:390:36:42

will be interviewed by...

0:36:430:36:44

..my colleague. Mr Frederick Lyon, our home affairs reporter,

0:36:500:36:54

who has been keeping a very close eye on events.

0:36:540:36:58

-Lord Elms will have no doubt have something to say...

-Christ.

0:36:580:37:02

..about the situation, and in particular...

0:37:020:37:05

Ron, keep it going.

0:37:050:37:07

..about this government.

0:37:070:37:09

Camera two.

0:37:100:37:15

Um...good evening, Lord Elms.

0:37:240:37:27

-Thank you for joining us tonight.

-Thank you for asking me.

0:37:290:37:32

You have been a member of the House of Lords for many years.

0:37:320:37:36

Yes. I also served in both world wars.

0:37:360:37:39

And for several years, I practised at the bar.

0:37:390:37:42

And you've known Sir Anthony Eden for many years. Is that correct?

0:37:420:37:45

-Yes.

-And what is your opinion of the Prime Minister?

0:37:450:37:49

I...I have believed him an honourable man.

0:37:580:38:03

-I've supported the Prime Minister in the past.

-And what of now, Lord Elms?

0:38:030:38:07

I ask you as someone who has believed

0:38:090:38:11

and for many years, served this government.

0:38:110:38:13

What is your view of the government today?

0:38:130:38:18

I find that all that I believed,

0:38:180:38:22

all that I held true has been turned upside down in these last few fragile months.

0:38:220:38:29

I see.

0:38:290:38:31

And why is that, sir?

0:38:310:38:33

I don't care what you do, but you shut this programme down now.

0:38:330:38:39

Did you hear that, Clarence?

0:38:390:38:41

-I find myself...

-I'll call presentation now.

0:38:410:38:44

..At an impasse, with a sense of loss

0:38:440:38:48

so great, one could call it a crisis of my own.

0:38:480:38:55

Put me through to Presentation.

0:38:570:38:59

It's a personal crisis, sir? A story that is close to you?

0:38:590:39:05

But it is not simply personal.

0:39:070:39:09

It's a loss of trust, a loss of belief

0:39:090:39:12

and more, a loss of my own ability

0:39:120:39:17

to judge what is true any more.

0:39:170:39:21

Is it not the case, Lord Elms, that it is a personal experience

0:39:210:39:26

that has led to this doubt?

0:39:260:39:29

All that I know is that

0:39:320:39:33

when the authority of a government is challenged, that government

0:39:330:39:38

will do everything in its power to ensure they are not exposed

0:39:380:39:43

as the...

0:39:430:39:45

liars and murderers...

0:39:450:39:50

that they are.

0:39:520:39:55

Liars and murderers?

0:40:080:40:10

These are strong words, Lord Elms.

0:40:100:40:13

Yes. I do not use them lightly.

0:40:130:40:16

And what was it that made you so radically change your view?

0:40:160:40:20

I have come to understand that it is possible, Frederick,

0:40:200:40:26

to be a patriot and at the same time question and judge

0:40:260:40:32

the wisdom and rightness of the government in power.

0:40:320:40:36

Ladies and gentlemen, if we cannot debate

0:40:360:40:41

that which troubles our society,

0:40:410:40:43

and more importantly troubles our government,

0:40:430:40:47

then we cannot in all honesty call ourselves a democracy.

0:40:470:40:51

If we cannot question our leaders

0:40:550:40:57

as they embark on what has been called an illegal military action,

0:40:570:41:02

an action publicly opposed by the United States government...

0:41:020:41:06

Shut it down now.

0:41:060:41:08

And the countries of the United Nations Security Council...

0:41:080:41:11

I want it off now.

0:41:110:41:12

-If we cannot reasonably and intelligently query...

-Shut down The Hour.

0:41:120:41:16

-..about the rightness of an action that appears at heart to be deceitful...

-Do it now.

0:41:160:41:20

Then we are not a free -

0:41:200:41:22

You're fired.

0:41:440:41:46

Right.

0:41:460:41:47

I expected nothing less.

0:41:470:41:49

For God's sake, turn that camera off.

0:42:100:42:12

36 minutes and 39 seconds. It's not bad.

0:42:240:42:27

Lord Elms, your car is waiting for you.

0:42:270:42:30

Thank you.

0:42:340:42:36

Lord Elms...did you realise how far Peter Darrall had led Ruth?

0:43:050:43:12

You know, Frederick, when you were first evacuated to us,

0:43:150:43:19

you were nearly 12.

0:43:190:43:21

We sent our driver to the station to pick you up.

0:43:210:43:23

It was only many years later that he told me

0:43:230:43:26

you chatted all the way to the house, insisted on sitting next to him.

0:43:260:43:31

You thought he was me.

0:43:310:43:32

You didn't see his rough hands.

0:43:340:43:36

You only saw a man you could talk about cars with.

0:43:360:43:39

I've thought often of this

0:43:390:43:43

and what a disappointment we must have been to you.

0:43:430:43:46

I must have been.

0:43:460:43:48

So stiff.

0:43:480:43:49

Always sitting in the back, away from the real conversation, when all you wanted

0:43:490:43:54

was to sit in the front and talk.

0:43:540:43:57

I realise it's what Ruthie longed for from me.

0:43:570:44:02

Such discoveries.

0:44:040:44:05

All too late.

0:44:070:44:09

We should have talked to her.

0:44:120:44:14

Not let her stray so far.

0:44:160:44:19

It all comes back to Ruth.

0:44:240:44:25

That's why MI6 killed her.

0:44:300:44:32

It all comes back to Ruthie.

0:44:350:44:40

I'll drive you home.

0:44:490:44:51

I have my car. I can drive my wife home.

0:44:510:44:53

Daddy, I'll be fine.

0:44:550:44:56

Shall we speak tomorrow, Hector?

0:44:580:45:01

There's a lot to talk about.

0:45:010:45:03

You made the right decision tonight.

0:45:050:45:06

I made a decision tonight, Wallace.

0:45:060:45:09

Well, you know where I am.

0:45:110:45:13

-Five minutes.

-Hector...

-Wait downstairs.

0:45:160:45:19

You're coming home?

0:45:190:45:21

Please convey my commiserations to Miss Rowley.

0:45:260:45:29

For her programme tonight.

0:45:310:45:34

I can't go back to the mailroom. I can't. I can't bear it.

0:45:440:45:49

The trick is to get very, very drunk and then dance until you're sick.

0:45:490:45:55

Fancy a drink?

0:45:560:45:59

I'll just get my coat.

0:45:590:46:01

-Mr Lyon?

-Well, at least you can't say your copy's boring any more.

0:46:030:46:08

Whisky's finished.

0:46:100:46:12

-Lix, coming?

-No, not tonight.

0:46:120:46:13

Tonight, I just want to go home.

0:46:130:46:16

Bravo, sweetheart.

0:46:170:46:19

Today you reminded me why I do this job.

0:46:190:46:22

You bottled that last interview.

0:46:460:46:47

Ambition over integrity, Hector, well done.

0:46:470:46:52

Freddie needed a chance.

0:46:520:46:54

Liar.

0:46:540:46:55

Do you think it's over?

0:46:580:47:01

Yes.

0:47:010:47:02

-I'm sorry.

-Don't be.

0:47:040:47:05

I take nothing back.

0:47:050:47:09

You're going back to Marnie.

0:47:110:47:14

What if we left now?

0:47:180:47:20

What if we just went? You and me. To France, or...

0:47:210:47:24

No, I thought not too.

0:47:290:47:32

Apparently, there are...

0:47:350:47:37

there are openings in the Natural History department.

0:47:370:47:41

-Maybe I'll see you there.

-Mmm.

0:47:460:47:49

Did we go too far?

0:48:210:48:23

Quite possibly.

0:48:230:48:24

Most definitely.

0:48:260:48:28

Good work, James.

0:48:300:48:32

You too, Moneypenny.

0:48:330:48:36

Where...where's Clarence?

0:48:430:48:46

It's over, Freddie!

0:48:460:48:49

Clarence?

0:48:510:48:52

Mr Lyon. We were just talking about you.

0:48:540:48:59

You really have outdone yourself tonight. Could you do any more

0:49:010:49:06

to undermine the future of this programme?

0:49:060:49:09

Really? I thought we showed restraint.

0:49:090:49:11

We could have been far more controversial.

0:49:110:49:14

What do you mean?

0:49:140:49:16

To reveal the government's unofficial attempts to destroy Colonel Nasser

0:49:160:49:21

might destabilise the country at a time of war, and we wouldn't do that to an already weak Prime Minister.

0:49:210:49:26

Unsubstantiated and outrageous accusations. Who the hell do you think you are?

0:49:260:49:30

Unofficial conversations have taken place between the government

0:49:300:49:34

and secret service, alluding to an attempt to assassinate Nasser.

0:49:340:49:37

Ruth Elms knew this. That is why they killed her.

0:49:370:49:41

What does he mean?

0:49:450:49:46

Clarence.

0:49:460:49:48

I have absolutely no idea.

0:49:480:49:49

Clarence, he needs to know.

0:49:510:49:52

Know what? My apologies. It's been a...a long night.

0:49:520:49:56

Hmm. Well, I'm sure it will all look very different in the morning.

0:49:560:50:01

Clarence.

0:50:040:50:05

Clarence!

0:50:140:50:16

Stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid boy!

0:50:160:50:20

What you did tonight was sabotage.

0:50:200:50:23

Everything that I have worked for the last 30 years, gone.

0:50:230:50:28

It was the truth.

0:50:280:50:30

The truth?

0:50:300:50:31

Righteous enthusiasm disguised as integrity?

0:50:310:50:34

Together, you and the entire team

0:50:360:50:42

of The Hour have dismantled the core of everything we have built.

0:50:420:50:48

Your positions are untenable.

0:50:480:50:51

You could not have disappointed me more, Freddie.

0:50:530:50:56

I told you about that transcript because...

0:50:560:50:59

-What? What was I meant to do with it?

-Run it. Just bloody run it, Freddie. That's all you had to do.

0:50:590:51:04

-You told me not to say anything!

-When have you listened to anybody who said to be quiet?

0:51:040:51:09

-You normally broadcast it to the world!

-And slander the whole government?

-Yes.

0:51:090:51:14

Why do you think I brought you in as part of this team, Freddie?

0:51:170:51:21

Because I saw something in you I once saw in myself.

0:51:260:51:29

The courage of my convictions.

0:51:310:51:33

If you were planning to expose us, me,

0:51:330:51:36

yourself in that way, at least make it worth it.

0:51:360:51:38

Save your speeches, because they don't work.

0:51:380:51:41

You blew the story, Freddie.

0:51:410:51:46

You, no, you, worse than that,

0:51:460:51:47

you teased us with a story that you did not deliver.

0:51:470:51:50

I gave you the story of your career, and you ran with a personal one.

0:51:520:51:56

You, you're useless to me now.

0:51:560:52:01

I cannot look at you. I can't.

0:52:020:52:05

You're no longer an asset.

0:52:060:52:11

It's you.

0:52:180:52:19

I'm your Brightstone.

0:52:230:52:25

What?

0:52:270:52:29

You put me on that list.

0:52:290:52:30

Clarence.

0:52:340:52:36

You put me on that list, like Darrall put Ruth.

0:52:440:52:46

"There's a Soviet agent working within the BBC, Freddie."

0:52:490:52:55

That's why you burnt the cigarette paper,

0:52:550:52:58

in case they traced it back to you.

0:52:580:53:01

It's not me they're watching, is it? It's you.

0:53:010:53:05

The click on the telephone.

0:53:090:53:12

It's not us they're listening to, it's you.

0:53:120:53:15

Tell me the truth.

0:53:150:53:18

Freddie, I...

0:53:180:53:20

Are you the Soviet agent working within the BBC?

0:53:200:53:23

No comment. Perhaps I might rephrase that.

0:53:290:53:33

My apologies.

0:53:330:53:34

In June,

0:53:360:53:37

a respected academic and Soviet spy, Peter Darrall,

0:53:370:53:42

was murdered in London.

0:53:420:53:44

Unfortunately, he was unable to do his drop that day

0:53:470:53:51

to inform his... what?

0:53:510:53:55

Colleague?

0:53:560:53:57

Associate?

0:53:570:54:00

You.

0:54:000:54:01

..that he'd been rumbled

0:54:020:54:04

and perhaps it'd be better if he "revert to Brightstone".

0:54:040:54:08

Find himself a new agent.

0:54:080:54:10

Did you have anyone particular in mind?

0:54:100:54:13

Perhaps me?

0:54:130:54:15

-Mr Fendley, I must ask you to reply. The nation is waiting.

-There was a time, Freddie, when...

0:54:180:54:24

..when a man had to find other ways to defy his government.

0:54:260:54:30

This was mine.

0:54:310:54:32

My God, Clarence.

0:54:320:54:34

Join the bloody British Communist Party if you will,

0:54:340:54:38

raise a bloody flag if you must, but a spy?!

0:54:380:54:41

Why?

0:54:410:54:43

Did you not see what erm, Russia has just done in Hungary?

0:54:430:54:46

That pass you by?

0:54:460:54:48

Clarence!

0:54:500:54:51

I don't know why they don't suspect us more. Journalists.

0:54:530:54:57

We're thrust into world events, life-changing events

0:55:000:55:05

and they expect us not to be changed.

0:55:050:55:07

Well, it changed me. It changed my view of the world.

0:55:110:55:14

Suddenly it all...

0:55:170:55:18

suddenly it all made sense.

0:55:190:55:21

But to betray your country?

0:55:210:55:23

-Was there really no better way?

-To defend what I believed in? I didn't think so.

0:55:240:55:28

Not until these last few months. Not until now.

0:55:340:55:38

Not until this programme.

0:55:420:55:44

Hope at the last hour.

0:55:490:55:51

You're a spy.

0:55:530:55:54

What do I do now?

0:55:590:56:00

What any good journalist would do. You...

0:56:020:56:05

..you run it.

0:56:070:56:08

Tell the world what I am.

0:56:080:56:11

For Ruth.

0:56:140:56:15

BEL: Freddie.

0:56:150:56:17

Is, is everything..?

0:56:180:56:21

I must go home to, to Edith.

0:56:210:56:23

Good night.

0:56:360:56:38

Freddie?

0:56:450:56:47

Are you all right?

0:56:480:56:49

Do you trust me?

0:56:520:56:54

-What?

-Would I betray you?

-No.

0:56:550:56:57

Yes.

0:56:570:56:59

Big betrayal or small betrayal?

0:57:010:57:03

-I'd never betray you.

-No.

0:57:030:57:05

-I'm a good person.

-Yes.

0:57:060:57:09

Do you trust me?

0:57:110:57:12

More than anyone else.

0:57:140:57:15

Not good enough. Missed the mark again.

0:57:150:57:19

I hate you.

0:57:220:57:23

I hate you.

0:57:280:57:29

HE LAUGHS

0:57:360:57:38

I hate you too.

0:57:400:57:42

C'mon. We've got a story to write.
