Ashes

Synopsis:
'Ashes' is about things that don't burn. It's about how books burn, but not ideas; manuscripts, but not music; people - but not love. 'Ashes' delves into the worst of humanity, and finds the triumph of the human spirit.

Reality

Synopsis:
Ali Muriel's Reality takes us into the world of conspiracy theories, the idea that it is the deliberate policy of a branch of the British government to create fear within the population. Jeremy Gates (James Howard), a university professor, uncovers a raft of evidence which tends to show this but he has a history of mental illness. He writes letters to the Prime Minister, even the Queen, to no avail and so tries to force his way into Thames House, the home of MI5, and so finds himself arrested and facing interrogation by a police office, a detective chief inspector (James Traherne).
