Every Duchess in England

by Alan Pollock.

It is 1931 and Britain is straining under an ongoing financial crisis, austerity measures and a Coalition government. Frustrated by the failure of the political class to take on the might of the banks, maverick Labour MP Oswald Mosley attempts to take things into his own hands by forming a New Party. But with the financial crisis deepening, co-founder and fellow Birmingham MP, John Strachey, quickly comes to question the motives of his larger-than-life friend.

Produced and directed by Gaynor Macfarlane.
