Guerrilla (Showtime/Sky Atlantic) – Premieres 16th April – Miniseries
Set in London during the protests of the Immigration Act in the early 70’s, it follows a couple, Jaz a nurse and Marcus a unemployed teacher, where after witnessing the increasing violence occurring at the demonstrations instigated by a South African filled section of the police force, decide to increase their protests.
After hearing how a Timothy Leary was aided in braking out of prison, Jaz and Marcus devise a plan to liberate a political prisoner they know being held in Wormwood Scrubs. During implementing the plan things begin to go awry, leading to Marcus shooting a policeman, though they manage to escape being caught leading them to form a radical underground cell.
For an opening episode it’s a decent watch.
