Bold Knights of Britain
How far would you go to protect your way of life?
Inspired by cult classic films 'This is England' and 'Four Lions', The Bold Knights of Britain by award winning writer Joseph Wilde (Cuddles & Casulty) is a brutal black comedy about angry people, nationalism and extremism. The show has been made using interviews with former and current members of some of Britain's most notorious far right groups.
The magical faraway kingdom of Britain is under attack. Immigrants are invading and the nation's rulers are powerless to stop them. Only one group stands in their way: The glorious Knights of Britain!
But when Jayne, an unemployed teenager, sets out from home to join the knights, she soon discovers that even they might not be up to the task. To stop them, Jayne will have to fulfil her destiny and become the knight that Britain needs!
