June 1989 Patrick Lau is a successful television director living in south London. His credits include popular TV drama such as The Return of Sherlock Holmes and Len Deighton’s spy series Game, Set & Match. But one day, shortly after the Tiananmen Square massacre in Beijing, he receives an unexpected phone call asking him to help two Chinese diplomats – and a real-life drama begins to unfold on his own doorstep.
30 years on, Patrick recalls the tumultuous events of that summer in a new 6 part podcast series.
