JEFFREY ARCHER SUBJECT OF NEW CHANNEL 5 DOCUMENTARY
A new Channel 5 documentary charts the many and varied epic scandals that Jeffrey Archer has managed to dodge for most of his life.
From his court action against The Daily Star after the newspaper accused him of paying off a prostitute who claimed to have slept with him, to his mayoral run, to his notorious trial for perjury and his eventual imprisonment, the scandals are endless.
Mixing testimony, archive, and drama reconstruction we examine what led Archer to fall, so dramatically, from grace.
Contemporary political figures, journalists, and comedians bring a unique perspective to his story offering insight, explanations and laughs as we chart his (almost) unbelievable scandal-riddled life.
The documentary airs Thursday 23rd March on Channel 5.
