Synopsis

Documentary-drama which tells the story of Margaret Thatcher's final days as leader of the Conservative Party and Great Britain. Thatcher is arguably one of the most controversial prime ministers in British history. Her forthright style and often equally blunt policies led some to dub her The Iron Lady'. Her political demise was every bit as striking as the rest of her premiership, with members of her own cabinet and party uniting against her, leading her to leave Downing Street in tears. This programme recreates the extraordinary sequence of events which saw Thatcher ousted from power and stars Sylvia Syms, John Wood and Trevor Bowen.
