Megan recommends: The Hour
This series just finished its run on BBC America and it was really well done. If you missed it, borrow the DVD from the Wellesley Free Library. The six hour miniseries is about a news program making its debut on the BBC in the 1950s. Russian spies, MI6, murder, intrigue, ever-present British class issues and _lots_ of smoking and drinking. It's also fun to watch Dominic West (yes, Jimmy McNulty from The Wire) play the show's upper-class anchorman.
