Description

Dennis Potter here introduces three of his acclaimed works, Blue Remembered Hills (1979), Joe's Ark (1974) and Cream in My Coffee (1980), and discusses the artistic potential and the limitations of a constantly evolving medium. Blue Remembered Hills: 'The novelty is that the leading characters, a group of seven-year-old children, are played by adult actors. It is a brilliant device, employed not as a gimmick but to suggest that youthful behaviour is carried over into the grown-up world . . . Blue Remembered Hills won the BAFTA Award for Best Play in 1979 and is a landmark in television drama.' The Times
