The authorities in Oslo have despatched two police officers to investigate the death of Governor Munk and their persistence leads them dangerously close to the truth.

THE LONG SONG – A three part adaptation of Andrea Levy's award-winning novel set during the final days of slavery in 19th century Jamaica. It tells the story of the strong-willed, young slave July on a plantation owned by her odious mistress Caroline Mortimer. When a charming new arrival to the island, Robert Goodwin, becomes the new overseer, July and Caroline are both intrigued by his seemingly revolutionary determination to improve the plantation for the slaves and mistress alike. This is a story about the injustices humans inflict upon each other and the unexpected ways in which people's humanity sometimes overrules their prejudices.

However come the morning of the wedding Gavin is nowhere to be seen.
