Following the movie, an exclusive Q&A will take place with the founder of Kenneth More's official website, Nick Pourgourides, who also looks after his estate on behalf of the family.

Nick will be sharing stories from behind the film and bringing a special award won by Kenneth for his performance as Bader.
