Harvey Weinstein documentary reveals new ‘sexual abuse’ allegations made by female employees – as Shakespeare In Love producer tells how he was ‘attacked’ by the mogul

Former Weinstein Company and Miramax employees are among those who speak out against the producer, describing how he would dominate, control and humiliate staff and colleagues in a pattern of abuse that extended from Hollywood to the heart of the UK film industry – a market that was crucial to his global success.

Working with Weinstein, which airs on Channel 4 tomorrow night, features interviews with a number of junior female workers who suffered at Weinstein’s hands as they tried to build their careers.
