Personal, political, comedic, dramatic a single play could be any (and all) of these, the fearlessness of the creatives and the willingness of the audience allowing a level of variety and experimentation that will never occur again.Showcasing specially selected plays from the archives, this ongoing collection shows how compelling and varied these shows could be, with many unseen since their original transmission.NEIGHBOURS (1970)Good fences make good... neighbours; everyone is entitled to be alone.
