Play For Today


Play For Today
It’s lots of plays
That win awards in many ways
They’re often grim and not much fun
You’ll find them on BBC1

There’s Scum, Red Shift and Penda’s Fen
Edna The Inebriate Woman
Scully’s New Year
Stronger Than The Sun
And that 2-Tone sort of Rude Boy one*

The Cheviot, the Stag and the Black, Black Oil
But not that one about Jimmy Boyle
From 1970 – 1984
Loads in the bin from the cutting room floor

Just Another Saturday, Just A Boys’ Game
Abigail’s Party
The Slab Boys, Blue Remembered Hills
Brimstone & Treacle

Rumpole of the Bailey
Spend, Spend, Spend!
Licking Hitler
Man Above Men
But they’ve wiped most of the tapes from then

The Flipside Of Dominick Hide
The Black Stuff, Scenes From Family Life
Home, Sweet Home and Joe’s Ark
The Elephants’ Graveyard
