Sons Of Lib­erty

Isis Town and Country - - Television -

Thurs­day, SBS One, 9.30pm

Their names may be familiar, but do we re­ally know much about the men who fought in the Amer­i­can colonies for free­dom be­fore their names be­came etched into his­tory? John Han­cock, Paul Re­vere, Ge­orge Wash­ing­ton and Benjamin Franklin are just some of the char­ac­ters brought to life in this sprawl­ing drama. A bril­liant cast in­clud­ing Rafe Spall and Ryan Eg­gold keeps Sons of Lib­erty out of schmaltzy ter­ri­tory. Tonight, Mar­garet (Emily Ber­ring­ton) di­vulges a plan by Gen­eral Gage (Mar­ton Csokas) to de­stroy the colonists’ forces and cap­ture Sam Adams (Ben Barnes, left) and John Han­cock (Henry Thomas). His­tory made fun.
