Ian Wylie has posted his BFI report on his Life of Wylie blog. Still no broadcast date but he does say it will be happen in the summer.
A major new drama shot in Manchester reveals the shocking truth about the growing child slavery trade.
Stolen is a hard-hitting 90-minute feature film highlighting the disturbing plight of young children sold to become slaves in Britain.
Due to be screened on BBC1 this summer and given a cinema release, the “heartbreaking” child trafficking story is directed by award-winning Salford-raised Justin Chadwick.
It focuses on Rosemary, a terrorised 11-year-old girl from West Africa who arrives at Manchester Airport with instructions to destroy her passport and identifying papers.
She has orders to contact a city trafficker who sells her on as a house servant and will buy her back when she is older to sell on as a sex worker.
Stolen also tells the stories of a young boy from Ukraine, sold as forced labour to work making sandwiches in the food industry, and a Vietnamese boy imprisoned in a suburban home to look after a cannabis farm.
Band Of Brothers and The Forsyte Saga star Damian Lewis plays Det Insp Anthony Carter, head of a Human Trafficking unit battling the rising tide of child imports.
“It was an extraordinarily strong script and moving story. It’s inconceivable that it’s happening under our noses. And it is,” said Damian, who was shocked by the “overwhelming scale” of the problem.
“The culture of fear is prevalent and that’s what prevents any great progress for the police. They do extraordinary work.”

Journalist Ian Wylie posted a picture of Damian Lewis at Monday’s BFI screening of Stolen and tweeted the following: “Stolen was shocking, moving and brilliant. BBC1 later this year.” Hopefully, he’ll have more for us on his blog. Sami also posted a quick report at the Yahoo! Groups saying “Stolen is so completely different from his other roles. The audience loved it.”
Added a new wallpaper here at the gallery. Many thanks to fragilidad for sharing!
We will be starting back on the Showtime series Homeland earlier than originally planned -now mid June. If you worked either of the 2 Welcome Home scenes during the pilot (at neighborhood or airport) you will be working our first week back for reshoots. Once pilot reshoots are completed we will begin filming season 1 and filming thru mid November
Thanks to Sami for the headsup!
Perhaps because of this “earlier than originally planned” filming, it seems Damian Lewis has indeed dropped out of the June 4th Hay Festival event: He is no longer listed on the event page.
