Burn Your Phone DVD - Alan Cumming, Jason Isaacs (1996)

The TV drama "Burn Your Phone" was based on Andrew Wallace's original Radio 4 play, in which Alan Cumming originally played the role of Andy. Cumming was so impressed by Wallace's script that he pushed hard for it to be produced as a TV drama. 
 
The screenplay shows its radio basis in focusing heavily on the main character and his reactions to the calls he receives. It's unusual for a TV audience to be asked to imagine off-screen scenarios, but Wallace's script and Cumming's well-judged performance make "Burn Your Phone" a half-hour of very watchable TV drama.

In a revealing feature-length 'Imagine' documentary (around 100 minutes long), Mike Leigh, director of Secrets & Lies, Vera Drake and Abigail's Party among many others, talks to Alan Yentob about a unique body of work and a lifelong struggle to make films on his own terms. 

On day one of a Mike Leigh film, there is no script, no story and the actors do not know if they will even be in the final film. It is a process that has yielded some of cinema's most celebrated performances, and Leigh's new film Mr Turner is already winning critical acclaim. 

Actors including Jim Broadbent, Eddie Marsan, Sally Hawkins, Lesley Manville and James Corden give fascinating insights into the director and his distinctive method of working.

Marion Bailey 
Jim Broadbent

Peter Terson 's sharply observed comedy from 1972. 
 
Three Derbyshire miners escape for a weekend's fishing, with the best of intentions. "We ain't pigs. No brown aleing, no being sick over the wall - we'll show our wives we can be civilised without them." Three miners plan a blameless weekend fishing the cod. "We might be rough-and-ready miners on a fishing trip but we're staying at one of them there hotels, you know. Cliff View. Very nice it is. It's got its standards, but we can live up to them.' 
 
It's really a simple tale of innocents abroad, with a touch of comedy of manners. A group of Northern English miners take a fishing holiday on which little goes right, from a snobbish landlady who resents their presence in the guest house to their discovering that the sea isn't really their element.

Cherished is based on the true story of Angela Cannings, who was tried for the murder of her babies. She spent two years in prison battling for justice before her conviction was eventually quashed.

Angela was convicted of the murder of two of her children with no physical evidence. Her acquittal created a landmark in legal history, resulting in a change of the law. Since then, nobody can be convicted in a criminal case on expert witness alone without proper physical evidence, such as that which would be required in any murder case.

All Good Men DVD (1974)

The unusual circumstances surrounding the transmission of 'All Good Men' (Play for Today, BBC, tx. 31/01/1974) uncannily reflected the political themes of the play. It was originally commissioned at short notice after another play fell through, and was restricted to a maximum of five characters and a studio-only shoot. Griffiths overcame his usual reluctance to write to such a restrictive brief because of the opportunity to reach such a large audience.

But political events served to impose further restrictions. The then Conservative government, led by Edward Heath, was engulfed in a political crisis chiefly caused by an overtime ban imposed by the mineworkers. In an attempt to conserve energy stocks, the government enforced a three day week; this included a limitation on broadcasting which forced television channels to close down by 10.30pm. As Play for Today started at 9.25pm, this required 'All Good Men' to be edited down from the standard 75 minutes to a mere 63 minutes.

These cuts were significant, as they drastically shorten the opening scenes where the former Labour politician Edward Waite (Bill Fraser) has a rehearsal interview with Massingham (Ronald Pickup), lessening our understanding of the man in terms of his personality and rhetoric. Also lost were most of the audio flashbacks to Waite's submissive and somewhat masochistic relationship with his ex-wife, an important theme which is taken up by his son William (Jack Shepherd) in the context of the relationship between the Labour party leadership and the establishment.

Despite these cuts, however, the play works brilliantly as a dramatised analysis of the parliamentary Labour movement that William defines as "itself a critique: both of extra-parliamentary revolutionism on the one hand, and of parliamentary Toryism on the other." The dialectic expressed in the speeches that bounce between father and son is both brilliantly written (Dennis Potter described them as "some of the sharpest, most telling and intelligent speeches ever heard on television"), and also convincing because of Waite's experience as a political orator and his son's years of rehearsing for this moment of truth. This is combined with a sharp analysis of the methods employed by the media to create its 'neutral' coverage of recent political history. 'All Good Men' has enough material in its short 63 minutes to fuel many other plays, and indeed can be seen as a precursor, even a miniature, of Griffiths' later masterwork, the 11-part epic Bill Brand (ITV, 1976)
