Alan Badel's acting stays in the memory 30 years on
BBC TV used to broadcast regular Sunday evening classic plays featuring top notch actors.
This production of Rattigan's 'The Winslow Boy' is notable for a larger than life performance by the late Alan Badel as the dry-as-dust (with hidden depths) lawyer Sir Robert Morton. Eric Porter is also excellent as the accused naval cadet's stubborn father.
This production has languished in the BBC archives for three decades and I have not seen it since the original broadcast but the power of Alan Badel's acting stays in my memory, eclipsing any rival's performance on TV or film.
