THE GOLDEN VISION – British Television Drama in the 1960s

Matthew Jarron

For much of the 1960s, the most innovative films made in Britain were seen not in cinemas but on television, as dynamic producers at the BBC and ITV took a chance on emerging talent that struggled to get their work seen on the big screen. This new course will look at the one-off dramas that were a vital part of TV schedules at this time, thanks to innovative anthology series such as The Wednesday Play and Armchair Theatre, bringing to huge audiences the extraordinary creativity of Ken Loach, Ken Russell, Peter Watkins, Dennis Potter and many others. It will be illustrated by complete programmes and numerous extracts.
