In­side the For­eign Of­fice

The Guardian - The Guide - - Audio - GM

This three-parter fol­low­ing civil ser­vants in the For­eign Of­fice would have made for in­ter­est­ing view­ing at any point in re­cent his­tory. But at a time when the skip fire that is Brexit con­tin­ues to burn brightly and Don­ald Trump is tak­ing a cud­gel to in­ter­na­tional diplo­macy, it is noth­ing less than fas­ci­nat­ing. Episode one takes place at the tail end of Boris John­son’s far­ci­cal reign as for­eign sec­re­tary and sees staff con­tend­ing with Rus­sian med­dling in Ukraine and a con­tin­ued stand­off over Syria. Plus a wel­come ap­pear­ance from Amal Clooney.
