NEON Winter Watches

As we head in to winter we see the nights getting – it’s the perfect season to hunker down, have a hot drink and settle in to some winter TV! Here are 10 movies, series and documentaries on NEON to keep you entertained this winter season.

Catherine The Great
“Empress Catherine has not been on the throne long and her position is under threat. A German princess who married into the Russian imperial family before usurping her unpopular husband, Peter III, in a palace coup, Catherine is seen by many as illegitimate and unqualified, not to mention a woman. But Catherine knows she is the best person for the job. With a skill and determination that belie her political inexperience, Catherine foils a plot to restore the former emperor Ivan VI, outmanoeuvres Minister Panin’s efforts to place her petulant son Paul on the throne, and drags Russia into the eighteenth century with a series of liberalising reforms.”
Starring: Helen Mirren, Andrew Rothney, Antonia Clarke, Clive Russell, Gina McKee
