    The Trial of the Chicago 7

    What was intended to be a peaceful protest at the 1968 Democratic National Convention turned into a violent clash with police and the National Guard. The organisers of the protest, including Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Tom Hayden and Bobby Seale, were charged with conspiracy to incite a riot and the trial that followed was one of the most notorious in history.

    The Queen’s Gambit

    Based on the novel by Walter Tevis, the Netflix limited-series drama The Queen’s Gambit is a coming-of-age story that explores the true cost of genius. Abandoned and entrusted to a Kentucky orphanage in the late 1950s, a young Beth Harmon (Anya Taylor-Joy) discovers an astonishing talent for chess while developing an addiction to tranquilisers provided by the state as a sedative for the children. Haunted by her personal demons and a narcotics-fuelled obsession, Beth transforms into a skilled and glamorous outcast determined to conquer traditional boundaries in the male-dominated world of competitive chess.
