But just how much of that gruesome first episode really happened? And did he really look like Kit Harington? The answer to the first question, according to contemporary accounts, seems to have been an emphatic yes: Catesby was a passionate rebel and devout Catholic, who believed evidently that violence in the name of the right cause was justified. He also, as indicated by his portrayal in the series, seems to have been a man with a gift for inspiring others. And to the second question? That said, contemporary images of Robert show him with a trifle more facial hair than Harington sports in the BBC series: Harington left with an anonymous portrait of Catesby from Who are the two Catholic women in the first episode, played by Liv Tyler and Sian Webber?

He faced the crossroads of an unenviable dilemma: Due to the risks involved, not all surgeons would have chosen to operate.

That is just my stance. This is not a simple thing like when you meet someone to do an appendectomy. There is a relationship of trust that has been established over multiple clinic visits. The programme charts his journey as he prepares for the six-hour, potentially life-changing operation. The bond forged between patient and doctor is evident in their easy rapport and good natured banter as Mr Furey bravely declares: I knew exactly what I was letting myself in for.

An awake craniotomy is a procedure carried out just 10 times a year by the surgical team at the hospital and not one undertaken lightly.

Production[ edit ] The series was a major new docudrama series produced by the BBC for the Autumn schedule. The other was obviously making sure we didn’t damage anything, which thankfully we managed! The series really is great and looks fantastic, well worth all the hard work. This was a huge project shot on location in Egypt and, as with any project of such scale, we had contingency funds available to us – so the unavoidable overspend was accommodated for and fully authorised.

In fact, due to the international co-financing, this is actually incredibly good value for money providing full period drama for the budget normally associated with a documentary.

Tuesday 1 April In a string of royal decrees and an overarching new piece of legislation to deal with terrorism generally, the Saudi King Abdullah has clamped down on all forms of political dissent and protests that could “harm public order”. The new laws have largely been brought in to combat the growing number of Saudis travelling to take part in the civil war in Syria, who have previously returned with newfound training and ideas about overthrowing the monarchy.

To that end, King Abdullah issued Royal Decree 44, which criminalises “participating in hostilities outside the kingdom” with prison sentences of between three and 20 years, Human Rights Watch said. Yet last month further regulations were issued by the Saudi interior ministry, identifying a broad list of groups which the government considers to be terrorist organisations – including the Muslim Brotherhood. Article one of the new provisions defines terrorism as “calling for atheist thought in any form, or calling into question the fundamentals of the Islamic religion on which this country is based”.

Raif Badawi release protests In pictures: Karl Andree on Saudi lashes Human Rights Watch said the new regulations were also a setback to campaigns for the protection and release of a number of prominent human rights activists currently jailed in Saudi Arabia. The organisation said the new “terrorism” provisions contain language that prosecutors and judges are already using to prosecute and convict independent activists and peaceful dissidents.
