Play For Today

I'm not sure the series was particularly consistent, but some of it was certainly among the best TV ever broadcast in the UK.

I saw a really good one with (I think) Jeremy Kemp or it may have been Charles Gray, who had hired an assassin to kill his wife and then spent the rest of the play trying to justify himself to the assassin, even offering him more money to listen. He made himself a steak tartare whilst talking, and ended up murdering the assassin in a fit of paranoia.

I wanted to pick this in the best tv programmes list we did, but was told it was ineligible (grrrrr....).

Objection! He was told that he couldn’t vote for Play for Today as a whole as well as individual films from the series!

Quite a few people voted for individual episodes so that was the format I accepted and none of them got in, unfortunately. Too much of a vote spread.

Awful thing when that happens. I had a similar experience at a Tom Jones concert.
