BAFTA success for philosophy graduate

The award for best single drama, at the BAFTA Television Awards 2014, was awarded to Kevin Toolis’ powerful Channel 4 MI5 spy thriller, Complicit.

BAFTA success for philosophy graduate

Produced by Kevin’s film production company Many Rivers Films, Complicit explores the murky world of intelligence agencies and their complicity in torture in the post 9/11 world.

Tapping into topical fears

Wriiten by Guy Hibbert and starring David Oyelowo and Arsher Ali, Complicit is a dark and thought-provoking look at the war on terror and was shown on Channel 4 in the UK early last year.

I am proud of winning the BAFTA for our film Complicit and proud too of the time I spent at Edinburgh. All those lectures on David Hume were not in vain.
