"First trailer has been released for BBC's new six part series SUMMER OF ROCKETS which, set in the tumultuous year of 1957, follows a Russian Jewish family living in Britain amid the fear and excitement of the nation's first Hydrogen Bomb test. The cast includes Keeley Hawes,Toby Stephens, Timothy Spall (as lord Arthur Wallington), Linus Roache (who plays an MP, the husband of Keeley's character)! Toby Stephens leads the cast as Samuel, a 40-year-old Russian Jewish émigré, inventor and designer of hearing aids whose clients include the former Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill. He is approached by MI5 to demonstrate his work but they actually want him to spy on his new friends played by Keeley and Linus. The series should start this spring on BBC2."
