Trial of Sir Roger Casement (The)

UK, English, 54 mins

  • Director: Cliff Owen
  • Writer: Cedric Wallis
  • Producer: Peter Wildeblood

CGiii Comment

Roger Casement was once the most famous homosexual in the UK after Oscar Wilde. On the centenary of his death, we present a rare screening of this 1960 dramatisation of his trial for treason. It was executive-produced by journalist and TV director Peter Wildeblood, who was himself imprisoned as a result of the Montague trial in the 1950s. Peter Wyngarde plays Casement, offering up a suitably dignified performance in the dock and a stirring rendition of his closing speech, while commentators Andrew Faulds and Brian Inglis fill us in on some of the context and detail as part of the original broadcast. We are very pleased to welcome Casement’s biographer and gay rights campaigner Jeff Dudgeon, who will give a short lecture on Casement’s life and legacy, marking the second edition of his definitive work on Casement and the Black Diaries.
