How Margaret Thatcher fatally underestimated Geoffrey Howe
The true story of how Mrs Thatcher, once the most powerful woman in the world, was brought down by Geoffrey Howe, her one time friend and political soul mate, with one of the greatest speeches ever made.
Howe, whose speaking skills saw him famously compared to a Dead Sheep, was inspired by his wife Elspeth, whose relationship with Mrs Thatcher was notoriously frosty.
Margaret, Geoffrey and Elspeth: a tale of love, honour, loyalty – and revenge.
Starring Steve Nallon as Margaret Thatcher, Paul Bradley (Eastenders, Holby City) as Geoffrey Howe, Carole Royle (Life Without George, Heartbeat) as Elspeth Howe and Graham Seed (aka Nigel Pargetter ‘The Archers’) as Ian Gow.
