THE CAPTURE Begins Tuesday at 9pm on BBC One, Produced by Derek Ritchie


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.
