John Hurt stars as the controversial and irreverent Conservative Minister Alan Clark in this witty and moving adaptation of his best-selling diaries. Blessed with lavish cynicism and cursed with an intrusive libido, Alan Clark schemes his way through the corridors of power at the height of Thatcher's Britain, offering his own inimitable insights into the Tory grandees of the time - including Tom King ("Too ghastly"), Michael Heseltine ("Odious"), Ken Clarke ("A podgy life insurance risk") and Mrs Thatcher herself ("So beautiful. She has wonderful, small feet"). As his political career falls apart through a succession of gaffes, scandals and personal self-doubts, Clark struggles to find true meaning in his life before it is too late.

With a sharp, literate script and truly outstanding performances from a distinguished cast that includes Jenny Agutter as Clark's wife Jane, Victoria Smurfit as his secret mistress X, and Julia Davis as Jenny Easterbrook, The Alan Clark Diaries has been universally acclaimed as a triumph for television drama.
