Jeffrey Archer: The Truth (2002) BBC

Notes: never released commercially on video or dvd.

A satirical comedy drama on the life of Jeffrey Archer, with the title role played by Damian Lewis. Its duration was 90 minutes and its premiere occurred on 1 December 2002. It was written and directed by Guy Jenkin.

Starting in Archer's Oxford days this bizzare comedy maps the 'truth' about Archer's rise, fall and eventual re-rise to power. The story is told in 2009 as Archer helps someone write an unofficial Biography a few year's after Archer's release from Prison.
