Dennis Potter has long been acknowledged as one of the most significant writers of the twentieth century. Though he had considerable successes with the series format it is generally accepted that his strongest work is the single play, of which he did many for both the BBC and ITV. In celebration of both Potter's body of work and the fiftieth anniversary of ITV, this set contains three of his most significant plays. Made for 'London Weekend Television' in 1980, these rarely-seen plays form a significant part of Potter's body of work and are released here for the first time, in any format, anywhere in the world.
'Cream in my Coffee' won the Prix Italia for Best Drama in 1980 and Peggy Ashcroft won the BAFTA for Best Actress. 'Blade on the Feather' won a Best Actor BAFTA for Denholm Elliott, as well as one for Best Graphics.
