Toby Jones

(Un)scripted: From Detectorists to Mr Bates vs The Post Office. A Q&A with Toby Jones on his life on stage, screen and TV

Hay Festival 2024, 

The most talked about British story of the year so far has been the Post Office scandal, thanks to a television drama. ITV’s Mr Bates vs The Post Office, starring Toby Jones as the titular Mr Bates, dramatised the case of hundreds of subpostmasters across the UK who were wrongly prosecuted after faulty computer software found money missing from post office branches.

Join Toby Jones to discuss both his role in this series, and his extensive TV and film career as one of the UK's most regarded stage and screen actors, and the unique power of television and film to shed light on human stories as he talks to author and broadcaster Viv Groskop.
