“For God’s sake! This protest of yours – is it really worth losing your lives over?”

January 1916: Bert Brocklesby is a schoolteacher, and preacher at his local Methodist chapel; Bertrand Russell is one of the greatest philosophers of his time. With the advent of military conscription their worlds are about to be turned upside down.

Michael Mears portrays conscientious objectors, army generals, Prime Ministers, world-famous mathematicians, and many more, in this compelling, shocking and inspiring story of the men who said no to war.

“A moving and dynamic retelling of a hidden story”
