Prime Video to Expose Very British Scandal

Prime Video will reveal A Very British Scandal on April 22.

Written by Sarah Phelps (The Pale Horse, Dublin Murders), the miniseries focuses on one of the most notorious, extraordinary, and brutal legal cases of the 20th century: the divorce of the Duke (Paul Bettany) and Duchess of Argyll (Claire Foy).

Reads the blurb:

Famed for her charisma, beauty, and style, Margaret, Duchess of Argyll, dominated the front pages as a divorce featuring accusations of forgery, theft, violence, drug-taking, secret recording, bribery, and an explicit Polaroid picture all played out in the white-hot glare of the 1960s media.

A Very British Scandal turns this scandal inside out in order to explore the social and political climate of post-war Britain, looking at attitudes towards women, and asking whether institutional misogyny was widespread at the time.

As her contemporaries, the press, and the judiciary sought to vilify her, Margaret kept her head held high with bravery and resilience, refusing to go quietly as she was betrayed by her friends and publicly shamed by a society that reveled in her fall from grace.

  1. I just got Amazon Prime Video back, mostly due to the James Bond movies being added next week. It’s good that it’s still $7.99 a month ???

  2. That’s what I love about streaming, Trevor: You can switch subscriptions and catch up on everything without breaking the bank. In the past year Prime Video has expanded its slate substantially and now offers great value and content!

  3. It sure is, Philip, I even got a free week which I wasn’t really expecting since I have been on there before so I’m happy ? I might watch Reacher as it’s apparently really good ?

  4. I like Amazon Prime. Mine’s on $4.99 a month possibly because I have just kept it going at that price. Trevor, have you watched Billy Bob Thornton in Goliath? It’s amazing.

  5. I think I have watched some episodes of Goliath when I was on there earlier. I really loved Reacher, it’s excellent. I have also got the Amazon Prime Video app in VR, it’s fun as you watch movies in a movie theatre ?
