The British film industry was central to Harvey Weinstein’s success, making him one of the most powerful men in Hollywood. While A-list actresses have made allegations of harassment, sexual abuse and rape by the renowned producer, this one hour film hears allegations of how he used his power and position to abuse his colleagues and workers in the British Isles, and keep them silent for 30 years.
A spokesperson for Harvey Weinstein has previously said that any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied.
Featuring in-depth interviews with former assistants and others who worked closely with Weinstein in the UK, the programme hears employees’ experiences of behaviour they describe as a misuse of power to dominate, control and humiliate.
Premiers on Channel 4 10pm 20th February
