Play For Today - local episodes
« on: February 12, 2009, 05:34:47 PM »
Hello everyone

I am desperately trying to track down episodes of the BBC's Play For Today series, written by local writers or set locally.

Here is a list which I've compiled by writer

Stewart Parker:

Catchpenny Twist
I'm A Dreamer, Montreal
Iris In The Traffic, Ruby In The Rain
The Kamikaze Ground Staff Reunion Dinner

Graham Reid:

The Billy Plays trilogy

Caryl Churchill:

The Legion Hall Bombing

Jennifer Johnston:

Shadows On Our Skin

Colin Welland:

Your Man From The Six Counties

Derek Mahon

The Cry

None of these plays were ever repeated or released on video and I was much too young to see them when aired. But I've developed a keen interest some of our local history and would dearly love to see these plays. If anyone can help me out, I'd appreciate it a great deal.

Thanks.  :)
