The swinging 60s is a decade celebrated for music and fashion. But away from Carnaby street, there was another word on everyone's lips: Scandal. In 1963 it emerged the secretary of State for War John Profumo was having an affair with Christine Keeler, the mistress of a Soviet Spy.
It became one of the biggest political scandals of modern times. Now an Andrew Lloyd-Webber musical based on the Profumo Affair is about to open in London. Sharon Thomas was given a sneak preview.
