A Small Light tells the devastating, familiar Anne Frank story, except from a different perspective, focusing in on the tragedies that befell the Frank family during the Second World War, through the remarkable woman Miep Gies, who risked everything to help keep the family safe in hiding. As such, this new mini-series, which is available to watch now on Disney+, is one that is actually full of hope, finding the good in humanity during a time when it felt like there was no such thing.

To mark the launch we had the pleasure in speaking to the talented leading duo in Bel Powley and Schreiber, as well the brains behind the operation, in creators Tony Phelan, Joan Ratner & Susanne Fogle. You can watch both interviews in their entirety below.
