Le BBC Press Office a publié ce matin les programmes de la semaine 46. Le biopic sera diffusé le lundi 16 novembre 2009 à 21 heures sur BBC Four (durée 1h30).
Enid is the first of three major one-off films to première on BBC Four as part of the Women We Loved season about the artistic careers of British female icons Margot Fonteyn, Gracie Fields and Enid Blyton.
Enid Blyton's charming characters and classic tales have enchanted generations of children for nearly 80 years. More than 500 million copies of her books have been sold in 40 countries.
This one-off drama reveals the woman behind such enduring stories as the beloved Famous Five, Secret Seven, Malory Towers and the Noddy series. The film will cast light on this ambitious and driven woman from the adversity of her imperfect childhood to her rise to become a renowned author and household name. Enid explores how the orderly, reassuringly clear worlds she created in her stories contrasted with the complexity of her personal life.
Helena Bonham Carter (Harry Potter, Sweeney Todd) plays Enid and Matthew Macfadyen (Frost/Nixon, Little Dorrit) plays Hugh Pollock, her publisher, first husband and father of her daughters Gillian and Imogen. Denis Lawson (Bleak House) plays Kenneth Darrell Waters, a London surgeon who becomes Enid's second husband following her divorce, and Claire Rushbrook (Mutual Friends) plays her friend, Dorothy.
For further insight into Enid Blyton's life, a new online BBC Archive collection will be available closer to transmission at bbc.co.uk/archive.
