BBC Two has released a trailer for their upcoming 90 minute dramedy The Wipers Times, which is set to debut on Wednesday September 11th at 9pm.
Penned by Ian Hislop and Nick Newman, The Wipers Times tells the story of Captain Fred Roberts and Lieutenant Jack Pearson, who, in the bombed-out ruins of Ypres in 1916, discover a printing press. They use it to produce The Wipers Times – a humorous, satirical and subversive trench newspaper which proves hugely popular with soldiers – though not entirely with their superior officers. The drama is produced by Trademark Films and stars Ben Chaplin, Emilia Fox (Silent Witness), Michael Palin (Monty Python), Steve Oram (Kill List) and Julian Rhind-Tutt (The Hour).
