The Turning Point

Benedict Cumberbatch starred as Guy Burgess in The Turning Point – a Sky Arts Theatre Live one off drama written by Michael Dobbs (House of Cards).

The play is built around a meeting in 1938 between Winston Churchill (Matthew Marsh) and Guy Burgess, at a point when the world was falling apart. They were both lonely men. A few years later, one had come to be regarded as The Greatest Briton, the other as The Greatest Traitor. But were they so very different?
