In a string of remarkable adventures, from the case of the Mansfield diamonds to the harrowing voyage into fear, Richard Hannay, the swashbuckling hero of John Buchan’s The Thirty-Nine Steps, manages to outwit Britain’s smartest criminals and always finds time to win the heart of a beautiful woman.
HANNAY captures perfectly the action-packed style of Buchan’s original work, which was turned into a classic film by Alfred Hitchcock.
Set amongst stunning locations, this is an authentic costume drama, evoking the timeless but turbulent Edwardian period which led into the First World War. Robert Powell, who stars as Hannay, is one of Britain’s most recognizable actors. He played the role in the 1978 remake of The Thirty-Nine Steps and starred in the internationally-renowned mini-series Jesus of Nazareth as Christ, winning accolades from press and public alike.
