Trivia

The BBC Radio programme "Front Row" [9 April 2008] included an item on why the play had not been broadcast and concluded it was 'a victim of BBC internal politics', possibly a dispute between the series' producers Cedric Messina and Shaun Sutton (Sutton pulled it, believing it 'a flawed production'). Brief extracts were broadcast. According to the programme a copy exists in the BBC's archives. See more »
