Storyline

BBC TV play, from the 'Wednesday Play' series. An elderly painter, once radical and confrontational, is given a final commission - to paint the portrait of the elderly establishment figure who represented a totally opposing set of values when they were both young. Both men are now old and of little consequence to the modern generation, but the painter sees his opportunity to make an artistic statement by means of the portrait. Written by D.Giddings <darren.giddings@newcastle.ac.uk>
