Reg BBC1, 9pm

Macclesfield Express - - TVWEEK -

Jimmy McGovern is the writer who brought us the pow­er­ful dra­mas, which was based on the events of Bloody Sun­day. Now, he’s tack­ling an­other real-life story, that of Reg Keys, who in 2003 re­ceived the dev­as­tat­ing news that his son Tom had been killed in Iraq. Con­vinced this was a mis­take on the mil­i­tary’s part, Reg makes the de­ci­sion to stand as an in­de­pen­dent can­di­date in op­po­si­tion to the Iraq War in the next Gen­eral Elec­tion – and he’s go­ing to do it in the con­stituency of Sedge­field, where he will be run­ning against Prime Min­is­ter Tony Blair.
