A behind-the-scenes drama and espionage thriller in Cold War-era England that centers on a journalist, a producer, and an anchorman for an investigative news program. Driven by quick-witted characters and fast passed dialogue.

I enjoyed the first series but burned out in the second. Suddenly, the main characters' brave words about what the public has the right to know sounded like the empty jammerings of freshman college students. Power to the people, man!

I enjoyed both seasons of The Hour and I am disappointed that there won't be a season 3.

I enjoyed Season1 more than Season2, but the characters, acting, and set design of this series are exceptional. I'm disappointed the series has been cancelled; I would have liked to see more of these characters :-(

Slow moving to start, but a very good series. The set design is impeccable.

Reasonable acting, but slow moving and implausible script.

Somewhat strange.....episode 4 is exactly the same as episode 3....

Cold war 1950s Britain at the BBC. A new program is created, pushing the boundaries of traditional, dry television journalism. The team putting on the show, title The Hour, includes producer Bel, a young ambitious woman struggling with her professional ambitions in a male dominated world; rakish anchor Hector; and home news correspondence and moral anchor Freddie. Throw into the mix are espionage, the Suez Crisis and of course a sexy love triangle.
