Early Dennis Potter, lost now found
12 December 2011 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Previously thought lost, this was shown as part of BFI South Bank's annual "Missing Believed Wiped" show on 11th December, 2011. Chief point of interest is that it's by Potter, who was almost certainly drawing on his own experiences in hospital. Terence De Marney is very good as an old soldier who has issues with a black patient (Dan Jackson, also good). Script editor Kenith Trodd revealed De Marney had trouble with his lines, but fluffs appear to have been edited out. (Play went out live). Surprisingly fluid camera-work for its period, but little to the script other than its casual racism and "strong" language. "N" word used a lot plus "bleeding", "piddle" and other words not commonly heard on TV at the time.
