National Treasure follows Paul Finchley, an aging, beloved comedian, and a hero to TV audiences and peers alike, after he is arrested following an allegation of rape dating back to the ’90s. The four-part drama follows the story from arrest through to verdict and focuses both on the investigation and the effect of the case on Paul and his family: his wife of 40 years, Marie, and his troubled daughter, Dee. National Treasure is a story that goes behind the headlines to look at the human and emotional impact when a whole life is called into question. It explores memory, truth, age, doubt, and how well we really know ourselves and those close to us.
