He points out that figures of this colossal scale pass only rarely through our lives.

"Whether people loved him or loathed him, no one was indifferent to Maxwell," he says.

Not a man to argue with, Maxwell insists that the banker join him in gleefully peeing off the edge of the building.

As they both empty their bladders on to the pavements several dozen stories beneath them, the banker asks nervously, "Don't the people down below notice?

Maxwell certainly didn't operate by the same rules as the rest of us: he never saw what he was doing as wrong or criminal."The makers of the drama are keen to emphasise that they are not depicting Maxwell simply as some moustache-twiddling, cape-swirling baddie.

He could be immensely charming, did a vast amount of work for charity and had to cope with the loss of two children (a daughter to leukaemia; a son following a car accident and six years on a life support machine)."The public perception of him is that he's a monster," says Barr.

Robert Maxwell invites two of his bankers on to the roof of his sky-scraping Mirror Group HQ and plies them with charm and champagne.

Colin Barr, who produced and directed Maxwell, observes: "He had a fatal arrogance.

Born Jan Ludvik Hoch in 1923, he grew up in abject poverty in the mountains of Czechoslovakia - he did not own a pair of shoes until he was four years old.

But he rose to a position of stupendous wealth and influence in Britain, before his hubris brought him crashing down.

He wanted to be part of society, but society didn't want him.

In fact, the more he tried to fit in with the Establishment, the less they let him in.
