Little viewed on YouTube, there is a series filmed in 1993, by the BBC Arena programme (complete with Brian Eno intro music) about the life of the author Graham Greene. If you have ever enjoyed his books, the series is well worth a watch. Of Greene’s years as an Mi6 station officer in Sierra Leone, which he based his 1948 novel The Heart of the Matter on, his former boss said,
“I don’t think Graham was God’s own gift to the secret service. On the other hand, I do think that the secret service’s great gift to English literature was to post Graham to Freetown… He was basically someone who was fascinated by the bizarre and bored of the routine.” Nicholas Elliott, former Director Mi6.
There is a description of the TV series on the Doku.Arts site,
Produced after Graham Greene died in 1991, this trilogy sheds light on Greene’s secret world, where the characters are typified by morbid obsession: weak men, traitors, hypocrites, failures. In the film, the cast of characters includes Kim Philpy talking about his time with Greene in the Secret Service, Greene’s contemporaries John le Carré and Anthony Burgess, his wife Vivien, his mistress Jocelyn Rickards and the secretive Yvonne Cloetta, his companion for the last thirty years of his life. Greene’s work is read by Sir Alec Guiness and narrated by Robert Powell. link
