T.E. Lawrence, an Agitator in Arabian Robes

Episode 2.9: T.E. Lawrence, an Agitator in Arabian Robes

Known to the world as Lawrence of Arabia, Thomas Edward Lawrence was a British army officer who operated behind enemy lines during the First World War. A spy and agent provocateur, he played an important role in the Arab Revolt against Ottoman rule. After the war, Lawrence struggled with his celebrity persona. He may also have continued with covert work in Britain and in India. Lawrence died under suspicious circumstances in 1935. In this special episode, we explore the life of T.E. Lawrence and interview independent filmmaker Mark Griffin on his upcoming feature, "Lawrence: After Arabia,” which explores the final years of Lawrence’s life.
