good all-role personal perspective on the theatre
27 September 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Richard Eyre made this TV look at influences on the British theatre as he came to the end of his tenure as the National Theatre's artistic director; typically, he focuses on a few key writers per episode, loosely organised into factions or geographical influence (thus, in the episode on the American influences we get Odets, Williams, Miller and the Broadway musical).

The presentation relies heavily on clips from the plays discussed, archive interview footage, and contemporary talking head comments. Eyre himself is in front of the camera far too much, although no one can doubt his enthusiasm and commitment to the craft he has long perfected as a director of drama and musicals. A valuable series.
