                                    Since September 2001, the public every day reads of encroachments on their liberty which are justified in the name of security. David Hare's trilogy, ripped from the headlines, focuses on the internal divisions and arguments which have been raging inside an increasingly controversial intelligence community.

                                    Page Eight
                                    Johnny Worricker (Bill Nighy) is a long-serving MI5 officer. His boss and best friend Benedict Baron (Michael Gambon) dies suddenly, leaving behind a contentious file whose explosive contents threaten the stability of the organisation. Meanwhile, a seemingly chance encounter with Johnny's striking next-door neighbour and political activist Nancy Pierpan (Rachel Weisz) seems too good to be true. Johnny is forced to walk out of his job, and then out of his identity to find the truth.

                                    Turks & Caicos
                                    Johnny Worricker is hiding out from his work at MI5 on the tax-exile island paradise Turks & Caicos. Trouble comes knocking when an encounter with a CIA agent (Christopher Walken) forces him into the company of some dubious American businessmen. Claiming to be on the islands for a conference on the global financial crisis, Worricker soon learns their shady activities extend far beyond luxury hotels.
                                    When one of them turns up dead, it's their financial PR (Winona Ryder) who seems to know more than she’s letting on. But will she help Johnny come to an understanding of what these men do and why they’re here? As evidence linking them to Prime Minister Alec Beasley comes to light, Worricker must act quickly if he is to survive.

                                    Salting the Battlefield
                                    Johnny Worricker and Margot Tyrrell are now on the run together across Europe, going from town to town in Germany. But Worricker knows his only chance of resolving his problems is to return home and confront his nemesis - the prime minister, Alec Beasley. To do this, he’s going to have to bring to light some unsavoury facts about the prime minister’s financial and business arrangements. But Worricker is haunted by the suspicion that he’s not the only person out to undermine the prime minister.
