The Republicans- Ronald Reagan: Hanging By Our Thumbs

By Jonathan Myerson

Entertaining new dramas following the political swings of The Republican Party, through the personal stories of its Presidents.

Closely based on the accounts of those who were there, we imagine the triumphs and disasters which have driven the party's electoral fortunes.

1987. Hold on tight for a knockabout journey through the crazy stories of the notorious Iran-Contra affair.

Ronald Reagan’s landslide second term is on the ropes. Congress is investigating evidence that the US has illegally been selling arms to Iran, and secretly diverting the proceeds to fund Contra guerrilla fighters in Nicaragua – all with the President’s knowledge.

But when NATO Ambassador David Abshire is recalled to try to get the facts straight, he discovers it all depends on what you believe…..
