An acutely timed new thriller for BBC One, starring Holliday Grainger, Callum Turner, Ben Miles, Ron Perlman and Famke Janssen.
When soldier Shaun Emery’s (Turner) conviction for a murder in Afghanistan is overturned because of flawed video evidence, he returns to life as a free man with his young daughter. But when damning CCTV footage from a night out in London comes to light, Shaun’s life takes a shocking turn and he must soon fight for his freedom once again.
The Capture is a six-part thriller that looks at a troubling world of fake news and the extraordinary capabilities of the intelligence services. In this ‘post-truth era’, can we really believe what we see?
The Capture is written and directed by Bafta Award-winning filmmaker Ben Chanan and produced by Derek Ritchie. Made for BBC One by Heyday Television and NBCUniversal International Studios.
