The story of P.T. Barnum, The Greatest Showman on Earth. Now available to licence.
Phineas Taylor Barnum was an entrepreneur, marketer and salesman. He created the popular Barnum & Bailey's Circus - The Greatest Show on Earth, which championed "freaks" of society such as the Oldest Woman Alive (JOICE HETH), the smallest man in the world (TOM THUMB) and a Swedish opera singer (JENNY LIND) who was the world's first global singing sensation.

BARNUM combines circus razzle-dazzle with charm and brass to sell “humbug” to cheering crowds. A joyful and moving musical portrait of the nineteenth century’s greatest show-biz legend, BARNUM is a colourful, dynamic spectacle with heart. 

The Golden Globe nominated film - THE GREATEST SHOWMAN starring: Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams, Zac Efron, Zendaya and Rebecca Ferguson, opens in cinemas on 25th December. Watch the trailer>
