EDIT
September 1939
AIRED:
Set in the Balkans 1939. Newly weds Guy and Harriet Pringle journey to Bucharest where Guy is a lecturer of English Literature. Impoverished Prince Yakimov arrives in the city and struggles to find financial support, but a temporary job as a Fleet Street journalist could save him from destitution. Guy introduces his wife to all the local expatriates and his Romanian friend Sophie. Life is sweet until the murder of the President is announced. Poland's invasion and rumours of the occupation of Romania threaten to undermine peace and international relations. Meanwhile, Guy’s socialist affiliations encourage him to protect the family of one of his Jewish students. As Guy becomes distracted with work and orchestrating social engagements, Harriet befriends bourgeoisie Bella and members of the British Legation.moreless
