Oscar-winning actor Jim Broadbent stars as 'mad' King George III in the title role of this adaptation of Alan Bennett's award-winning play, which co-stars Cheryl Campbell, Nicholas Farrell and Alun Armstrong. The King is losing his mind. Doctors are brought in as his eccentric behaviour becomes more bizarre and erratic, while his son, the Prince Regent, waits – and plots. Combining Jim Broadbent's 'heartbreaking portrayal of the batty old monarch' (Observer) with Alan Bennett's trademark dark humour this full-cast drama was first heard on the BBC's World Service. The Madness of George III was filmed as the Oscar-winning The Madness of King George, starring Nigel Hawthorne and Helen Mirren.
