Letters follows two neighbours: deeply-conservative local Edith Swan (Olivia

fellow residents start to receive wicked letters full of unintentionally hilarious
profanities, foul-mouthed Rose is charged with the crime. The anonymous letters
prompt a national uproar, and a trial ensues. However, as the town’s women, led

themselves, they suspect that something is amiss and Rose might not be the
culprit after all. Click here for trailer

rescue before the borders closed? Fifty years later, Nicky is still blaming himself
for not doing more. It’s not until a live BBC television show, ‘That’s Life’, surprises
