Graham Greene was a writer and journalist, who is widely regarded as one of the leading English novelists of the 20th century. Having served a time in Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service (MI6), he would frequently weave the contacts he met in real life into his books and feature films. Sir Derek Jacobi is the narrator and Bill Nighy is the voice of Greene.
“Brilliantly edited; the range of contributors is truly impressive and they are extremely well used; and the news footage to situate the novels in their historical and political context is extraordinarily powerful. In short, it’s the best documentary on Greene I’ve seen.”- Professor Neil Sinyard, Graham Greene Festival Director
