Gender balance in comedy is so 1950s | Brief letters

TV panel games | Women in sport | Regional TV listings | Guardian letter-writer | Cma’s monopoly

History did not begin in 1967 (All-female lineup on a comedy show has only happened once, 24 December). In the 1950s it seemed de rigueur for panel games to feature two men and two women, or a team of men against a team of women. Granted it seemed to be that one of the women had to be Isobel Barnett or Barbara Kelly, but there was nothing unusual about more or less parity. Indeed, the BBC Home Service/Radio 4 had an all-female discussion show called, perhaps unfortunately, The Petticoat Line, until late into the 1960s at least. The idea that comedy is necessarily laddish is quite recent, perhaps from the 1980s or thereabouts.

David Anspaugh has signed to direct the inspirational tale "Little Red Wagon," based on the story of 12-year-old Zach Bonner, an advocate for homeless youth.

Patrick Sheane Duncan ("Mr. Holland's Opus") is writing the screenplay about Bonner, who as a 7-year-old used his wagon to collect water and supplies in Tampa, Fla., for victims of 2004's Hurricane Charley. A year later, he formed the Little Red Wagon nonprofit to help underprivileged kids.

The film is being funded by the John Templeton Foundation through the Philanthropy Project and will be produced in association with Anonymous Content. Launched in 2007 through a Templeton Foundation grant, the Philanthropy Project is a nonprofit that uses the moving image to inspire citizen philanthropy.
