Synopsis:
A staple part of children's programming throughout the eighties, 'Dramarama' provided an early showcase for some of Britain's most accomplished screenwriters, directors and performers. This unique anthology series presented a distinctive and eclectic mix of drama - from whimsical comedy to surrealistic fantasy, from supernatural fable to hard-hitting contemporary realism. This first volume presents ten memorable screenplays from Thames Television, including the hugely popular 'Dodger, Bonzo and the Rest' - developed into a series the following year - and the fantasy yarn 'Mr. Stabs', starring David Jason as the famously malevolent magician first seen in 'Ace of Wands'.
Featuring performances from such notables as Gary Oldman, Dexter Fletcher, Pam Ferris, Peter Capaldi, Patrick Malahide, and Susan Jameson, this volume includes key examples of one of the best television shows of the 1980's.
