Synopsis

When a rich British aristocrat disappears off the coast of Australia in 1866, his servant Bogle is dispatched. With Lord Tichborne nowhere to be found and realising that he will be refused a return home unless in the company of his master, Bogle desperately attempts to mould a vulgar peasant into a Tichborne double. The following crash-course in elite etiquette makes this a delightfully different costume drama - slapstick chaos underlined by a satirical assault on the hypocrisy of the day's establishment. Based on a true story, the 'is he or isn't he the real Titchborne?' mystery is skilfully teased throughout.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."
